Amir is a father of three children.

He owns a sweater shop in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. This shop is the only source of income for the family, so he is interested in purchasing a variety of wool for knitting sweaters. Though summer season is started in the area, he wants to increase the stock of his business for the next season by knitting as many sweaters as he can. This will help him to increase his net income and savings in the winter season and will save his time as well.

However, due to the lack of capital, he finds it difficult to purchase the needed things. Therefore has requested a loan amount of 100,000 PKR from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. He dreams for the growth of his business and for the bright future of his children.
