Farrukh's story

Farrukh is 34 years old. He lives in Lahore, Pakistan. He is a responsible father of one son. He owns a hotel in the area which is the only source of income for his family. He wants to purchase chicken, beef, mutton, pulses (lentils) and vegetables for his business. However, due to the lack of money, he finds it difficult. Therefore Farrukh has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to cover the cost of purchasing needed food products for the hotel. This will help him to continue his business and to increase his net income. Farrukh is very thankful to Kiva.
