Yousaf's story

Mr.Yousaf is 49 years old, and a very hardworking man. He lives in Lahore, Pakistan with his family; he has a wife and seven children. He has a large family, however, he is the only person earning income in the family.

He has been working as a cobbler for 25 years. But, his monthly net income is inadequate to meet the household expenses. He is in need of more material for his shop, but due to lack of funds, he finds it difficult.

He has requested a loan of 100,000 PKR from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan, to purchase leather, resin, thread, and glue for stitching shoes.

He is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
