M. Aslam's story
M. Aslam is a 26-year old religious and energetic man, living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. He is the father of two children. He belongs to middle standard families; his father has grown old and stays idle at home. He is the only income-earner who has to bear all household expenses regarding his elderly parents, young children and sibling. His younger brother is a student still studying in 12th standard. M. Aslam owns an corporation store in which he offers televisions, washing machines, almira, sewing machines, juicers, grinders and ovens on installments. He also offers a one-year warranty for each product. This is the only source of income for the entire family and his present stock is insufficient to meet household expenses. He wants to grow his business and wants to buy more electronics to sell but he does not have enough capital for further investment. Therefore, M. Aslam has requested a loan from BRAC Pakistan, which is the field partner of Kiva. Using this loan he will buy more stock to offer on installments. He is very happy after taking out this loan; he is very thankful to Kiva and its field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
