Ashraf recently started a new business in which he sells mobile phones and phone accessories. He does not have capital to buy new expensive mobile phones of different brands. For expensive mobile phones, he first takes an order and then purchases the new mobile from the market for his customers. This is a lengthy procedure; he wants to buy expensive mobiles so that he can sell them on the spot. He also wants to offers accessories. But he does not have sufficient capital to buy new phones and accessories.
Therefore, Ashraf has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan so that he can buy mobile phones and accessories for his shop. Ashraf is hopeful that this business will work well and he will establish it soon so that he can earn income for his family. He will use the profit for a number of tasks such as establishing his shop, paying back the loan and saving money so that he can get married.
Ashraf is very thankful to Kiva and to its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
