A loan of $250 helped to pay for repairs on her husband's taxi.


Amina's story

Amina is the responsible mother of five children. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Her husband has been providing transport service, by driving a taxi, for two years. He is responsible for fulfilling the needs of the entire family. Her husband needs to make repairs on his taxi, because the current condition of his taxi is not good and it requires more maintenance charges on a daily basis. Due to insufficient financial means, he is unable to make repairs on his taxi. Therefore Amina has applied for a Kiva loan from its field partner BRAC Pakistan.

With the help of this loan, Amina's husband can afford the maintenance costs easily and provide better transport services to earn a profitable income. Amina also plans to make savings with the profit from her husband's income to meet her family's needs in future.

Amina is very grateful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
