Babu Baber
Babu Baber is 35 and lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. He is religious, sympathetic, honest and a hard worker. He is running a small business in a nearby town providing services in the form of running a grinding stone. He speaks in a monotonous tone, which is impressive, and he easily wins the trust of others. Due to his behavior and tone; he has built very good relations with his customers. His grinding stone shop is very famous in the town, which is the reason his business is running well. Due to his good relations with his customers, his sales have increased a lot. He sells flour in the shop as well, so he needs wheat to increase his stock of flour in his shop.

Babu Baber is the sole earner in his family and he has been providing financial support to his whole family by himself. His expenses are increasing day by day because his children are in school. Therefore, Babu Baber has requested a loan to buy more wheat and a grinding stone (machine). In this way, he can meet his financial requirements.

Babu Baber hopes that the lenders support him in the expansion of his business. He is very thankful to Kiva's field partner BRAC Pakistan.
