Nazmeen is a 38-year-old woman. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a responsible mother of two daughters and two sons. Her husband is a rickshaw driver, by profession. He has been running an auto rickshaw for the past ten years.

Due to excessive use, the rickshaw body has become damaged, and some parts of it are not working properly. Because of this, he is unable to generate any amount of income. He wants to repair the rickshaw and replace its body, as soon as possible. However, due to the lack of money, he finds it difficult to cover the cost. Therefore, Nazmeen has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan. She will use the loan to help her husband to cover the cost of repairs and body replacement for the rickshaw. This will enable him to continue his business. Nazmeen is so much thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
