Rizwan is 39 years old, married and the father of two children, living with his family in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Since 2001, he has been running a business of selling blankets and bedsheets, which is the only source of income for his family.

Currently he is in need of expanding his business by adding more bedsheets and blankets. Due to financial constraints he finds it difficult, so he has requested a loan of PKR 100,000 from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan. This will not only help him to grow his business, but will increase his net income and savings as well. He wants to provide a quality education for his children. He is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
