M. Saqib
M. Saqib is a 26-years old man, living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan with his family. He works hard to provide better living standards to his family by selling gift hampers and decoration pieces. He purchases all gifts and decoration pieces from the market and then sells it to the general public. Most of the sales he made at festivals, occasions and on ceremonies. He has become famous by providing good quality gifts and has retained many customers. He earns enough money to support a decent life. During this tenure he experienced that most of his female customers demand for the beauty products a lot. This is the reason he decided to offer cosmetics products also with the gift hampers.

Therefore, he requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner so that he could offer beauty products also with gift hampers. This is his first loan and he assured us to pay all the installments on due time. He is very experienced in his business and confident that his business will move in a positive direction as a result of the loan investment.
He is very thankful to Kiva’s field partner’s BRAC Pakistan.
