Mr. Akbar is a 33-year-old man who lives in Lahore, Pakistan, with his family. He is a father of 4 children. He dreams of providing quality education to his children.

Since 2000, Akbar has been running a general store, and this store is the only source of income for the family. Presently he is in need of purchasing a variety of products for the store that include rice, flour, milk packs, eggs, soaps, tea packs, shampoos, sugar, etc. To purchase those he has requested a loan amount of 120,000 PKR from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan.
