Suriya is a 42-year-old woman who lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a responsible mother of three children. Her husband is a rickshaw driver by profession. He has been running an auto rickshaw for the last few years. For many days his rickshaw has not been working properly, because of regular use. He feels that most of its parts are out of order. So he is unable to generate any amount of income. He wants to buy a new auto rickshaw. However, due to the lack of money, he finds it difficult to cover the cost of a new rickshaw. Therefore, Suriya has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan, to help her husband cover the cost of a new rickshaw. This will help him to continue his business. Suriya is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
