Iqbal is a milk seller by profession. He sells milk in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. He is the only earning person in the family. He wants to provide quality education to his children, and to do that he has to save a huge amount of money. But daily expenses are increasing every day and his income is insufficient even to sustain his family life. He is facing a load shedding problem in his area as well and because of that he can't preserve milk in the freezer.

Presently he needs to purchase food for buffaloes. For that he has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase food for his buffaloes and for the maintenance of cartage. He hopes that the loan will be helpful for the growth of his business.
