Rafi's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy stock of cardboard for making boxes so he can fulfill his new contract.

Rafi's story

Rafi is a 28-year-old man who lives along with his sibling and parents in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. He is involved in his own business, which is box making to order. Rafi takes orders from many companies for making cardboard boxes of various sizes. He purchases cardboard from wholesalers and cuts it down into the desired size using heavy cutters. Recently, more companies have put in orders for him to make boxes, but Rafi does not have enough cash in hand for purchasing the cardboard to fulfill his new contracts. This is the reason why Rafi has requested a Kiva loan through BRAC Pakistan. He will buy stock of cardboard for making boxes so he can generate income for his entire family. Rafi's wish is to involve his younger brother in the same business after he completes his studies, because he can not handle all the business affairs alone. Rafi thanks Kiva and the field partner BRAC Pakistan.
