Faheem is 30 years old. He lives in Lahore, Pakistan. He owns an animal sales business. He purchases cattle and goats, cows from the field, and sells them at a profitable price in the main market. This is the only source of income for his family.

Presently he is interested to purchase cattle and goats for his business which will help him to increase his net income and savings. However, due to his lack of funds, he finds it difficult. Therefore he has requested a loan of 100,000 PKR from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan, so that he can purchase animals from the field and sell them in the market at a profitable price. With the profit he wants to grow his business in the future.

Faheem is thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
