A loan helped To buy herbal medicne for herbal shop.
Shafiq is 30 years old and the father of two daughters living in Lahore, Pakistan. He is religious, sympathetic, honest and a hard worker. Shafiq is running a small herbal shop in a nearby town to help the poor people. Because he wanted to help the poor, he decided to open herbal medicine shop in poor society for those who do not have the power to afford allopathic medicine. He can also treat minor diseases at a very low service charge and provide herbal medicines according to his experience. In this way, he gets some income to run his house as well. Shafiq is very famous in his area due to his kindness. This is the reason the demand for herbal medicine has been increasing. He needs to buy more herbal medicine to cope with the demand. He wants to buy herbal medicine in bulk, but does not have enough capital to invest because he has to spend a large part of his savings on household expenses. Therefore, Shafiq has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan. He hopes that the lenders will support him in his noble work.
