Anwar Masih
Anwar Masih is a 30-year-old married man. He lives in the rural area of Lahore, Pakistan with his wife and daughter. He has been in the business of selling milk for many years. This is the only source of income for the family. He has a few buffalo for his milk-selling business. He delivers milk in the market and door-to-door. For delivery purposes, he uses his bicycle. He loads milk cans on his bicycle and delivers them early in the morning. His customers like the fresh and delicious milk he delivers. His monthly net income is too low to meet the household needs.

Therefore, he planned to purchase one more buffalo to increase his sales. However, he finds it difficult due to financial constraints. Anwar Masih has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. This will not only help him to increase sales, but it will also increase his net income and savings as well. He hopes to provide a quality education for his children. He is a very hardworking and responsible person. He is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
