Tariq's story

Tariq is a 47-year-old, hardworking and diligent businessman. He lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, with his wife, two daughters and one son. Since 1998, Tariq has been running a small general store to generate an income for his family. He has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan to expand his business. He wants to buy a variety of goods like milk, sugar, rice, soap, detergents, creams, etc., and to introduce some new items for his general store in order to fulfill the demands of his customers and increase his savings. He will reinvest the profit in the general store and use a part of it to pay for household expenses and the education of the children.

Tariq is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan for their support. He is very hopeful that the loan will be a productive one for himself and his family.
