Arshad's story

Arshad is a very hard-working and active borrower with Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. He is 50 years old and lives in Rawalpindi with his family: a decent and responsible housewife, 4 sons, and 4 daughters. Two of his sons live abroad while rest of the children are students.

Since 2002, Arshad has been running a small garment shop in the market. This shop is the only source of income for his family. The winter season has started in Pakistan, so he wants to purchase a variety of warm clothing, such as sweaters, coats, gloves, mufflers, and school jerseys. To do this, he has requested a loan in the amount of PKR 100,000.

The loan will help him to offer a variety of products to his clients and increase his net income as well. Arshad dreams of increasing his business so that his children can have a better future. Arshad's family sends loads of prayers and thanks to all of the staff of Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
