Rana M. Riaz's story

Rana M. Riaz, age 42, is a hard-working man who operates a general store in Lahore. He and his wife are the responsible parents of three children, and his shop is the only source of income for the family.

At present, the stock of his business is almost depleted. For this reason, he has requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan, which he will use to purchase a variety of products for the store. The loan funds will be used to buy such items as oil, rice, sugar, milk, and shampoo. This investment will help him to continue his small business and to satisfy the demands of his clients.

Despite going through a very tough time at present, and despite all the difficulty experienced by his family, he always tries to be happy because he has a firm belief on Allah Almighty, knowing that he will resolve all his problems some day. He dreams of a bright future for his children.

He is confident that the requested loan will be productive for his business and beneficial for his family.

He is thankful to Kiva lenders and to BRCA Pakistan.
