Amir is a kind and hardworking person. His children are young and growing, and he is worried about their future. He is a poor person but loves his family very much. He tries to make sure that his family does not have any needs left, so that's why he continues with his carpentry work by day and night.

Amir is involved in his own business to have a regular income for the family. He is involved in the manufacturing and selling of furniture, such as tables, chairs, beds etc. He started this business over 11 years ago. His wife does not work; she stays at home and most of the days she gets sick. Today, he has many regular customers and also takes orders from other cities. This business yields a good income for him, but his family's needs are increasing day by day and he needs to earn more money. Now he wants to buy more raw materials for making furniture in order to expand his business. That is why he came to BRAC Pakistan and described his wish to obtain a loan to buy raw materials for marking furniture. He hopes that this loan will prove beneficial and productive for his business as well as for his family.

Amir says thanks to Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan for this honorable support
