Tariq owns a small dairy farm in the area of Lahore, Pakistan, which is the only source of income for his family. He has three buffaloes, which is insufficient to earn a good amount of income and sustain the lives of his family. Therefore he wishes to purchase two more animals so that he can get more milk to sell and earn a good amount of income.

Tariq has requested a loan amount of 100,000 Pakistani Rupees (PKR) from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase cattle for his business. He does not want his children to spend their lives as he did. Therefore he wants to provide quality education to his children so they can lead respectable and good lives in the future. He is thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
