A loan of $1,025 helped to purchase cloth for his business.


Waseem Rafique's story

Waseem Rafique is 47 years old. He lives in Lahore, Pakistan with his family. Since 2000, he has been running a fabric business; it is the only source of income for the family.

Presently he is interested in purchasing more fabric for his shop, but the lack of money makes it difficult. Therefore, he has requested a loan of 100,000 PKR from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan. This will help him offer a wider variety to his customers.

Waseem Rafique is facing a few challenges in his business because today, people prefer to purchase ready-made clothes instead of fabric to make clothing; this trend is negative for his business.

He wishes to get great progress as a result of the loan. He is thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
