Shaista is a responsible mother of six daughters and a son. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Her husband has been providing transport services by driving a taxi for two years. He is responsible for covering the expenses of his entire family. Shaista's husband needs to repair his vehicle, because he is incurring daily maintenance charges. However, he does not have enough money to make the repairs. Therefore, Shaista has applied for a Kiva loan from its field partner BRAC Pakistan.

With the help of this loan, Shaista's husband will be able to afford the repairs, provide better transportation services, and increase his profit. Shaista also plans to save her husband's profit so that she can cover the family's future expenses. She is very grateful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
