M. Sarwar owns a clothing shop in the market; he sells fancy and high quality clothing. Some customers prove very poor and do not purchase after asking the prices of clothing. He does not compromise upon his quality and rates; he does not sell below his purchasing power but he does not like to refuse his respected customers also. To win their confidence and to avoid disappointment of worthy customers, he wants to start a low rates clothes stall on the front of his shop so that such poor customers, who do not have enough purchasing power, ultimately can buy clothing for their children and can celebrate Eid Festival.
M. Sarwar invests his savings and profit in his current business but does not have enough cash in hand to set up a new stall.
For this purpose he requires financial support from Kiva, so he contacted the field partner BRAC Pakistan and requested a Kiva loan. In this way he can easily set up a clothing stall for the poor customers and can generate more income for cherishing his own family as well.
M. Sarwar is very delighted and thankful to Kiva and field partner BRAC Pakistan.
