Mr Qasim is a very hardworking, married man. He lives in Lahore, Pakistan. He is a father of one child. He always tries his best to fulfill the needs of his family. He has been running a garment shop in the area, which is the only source of income for the family.

Presently, he is interested in purchasing a variety of garments, including jeans, dress pants, shirts and t-shirts, to sell. However, due to the lack of financing, he finds it difficult. Therefore he has requested a loan amount of 150,000 PKR from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan. With the profit, he will put aside some savings for the future. He is thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
