Maqsood Ali
Maqsood Ali is 29 years old and married. He is an energetic man living with his spouse and a son in the area of Afandi Colony, Hyderabad, Pakistan.

He owns a business manufacturing packing boxes. He has been running this business for the last 6 years. At the beginning, it was not very profitable, but with the passage of time, he has established the business on a grand level. Now, there are six co-workers also working with him.

Maqsood Ali purchases raw materials from markets such as corn starch glue, cardboard, brightly colored inks, and cutter machines. After manufacturing the packing boxes, he supplies them to the shopkeepers.

He manages his household necessities with his business. He speaks with a monotonous tone which is impressive and easily wins the trust of others. This is a reason that his number of regular clients increases day-by-day.

He wants to expand his box making business. He is in need of a cardboard cutting machine. Therefore, Maqsood Ali requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, so that he will be able to buy a cutting machine to improve his packing box business.

He hopes that lenders will support him and this loan will prove productive for his business. He is very impressed with the Kiva loan cycle system. He is thankful to the lenders.
