Asif is 39 years old and lives in Lahore, Pakistan with his family. He is a father of one son and two daughters. He has been selling dates in the area and that is the only source of income for his family. He is sustaining his family life with many hurdles because his monthly income is very low. He wants to increase his net income by purchasing more products for his shop. For that reason he has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan.

With the help of the profit he will purchase a house to offer a comfortable life to his children. He is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
