Mr. Imran, age 33, runs his own artificial jewelry shop at the market. He opened his shop in 2005 and it has proved to be a very successful business for him. He lives with his family in Lahore, Pakistan. The shop is the only source of income for the family.

Mr. Imran is interested in purchasing more artificial jewelry like bangles, necklaces, earrings, and rings for his shop. However, due to financial constraints, he finds this difficult. Therefore, he has requested a loan in the amount of 125,000 PKR from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan, where he has been an active borrower. The purchase will not only help him to grow his business but will also increase his net income and savings. He is confident that the loan will be a productive investment for his business and future.

He is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
