Ashraf
Mr. Ashraf is a 51-year-old man who lives with his family in Lahore, Pakistan. Since 2005, Ashraf has been supplying construction materials, which is a very successful business for his family. He is an active borrower of BRAC Pakistan.

He is currently in need of purchasing building materials for his shop, such as bricks, cement, and sand. But, due to financial constraints, he finds it difficult. Therefore, he has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan. This will not only help him to grow his business, but will also increase his net income and savings. Ashraf is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
