Asghar's story

Mr. Asghar is a very kind and hardworking man. He belongs to a poor family and lives in Lahore, Pakistan. He is a father of three sons and two daughters. He owns a steel and metal reshaping shop in the main market. For the past few days, the machine has not been working properly, which means that he is unable to complete his work on time. This issue is creating a lot of financial problems as well, as he is unable to generate sufficient income. He wants to repair the machine as soon as possible. However, due to the lack of money he finds it difficult. Therefore, he has requested a loan of 100,000 PKR from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to cover the cost of repairing the machine that he uses for working with metal and steel. He hopes that the loan will help him to repair the machine as soon as possible so that he can continue his work. He is thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
