Arshad's story

Arshad is 33-year-old man who is the father of two children. He lives in Lahore, Pakistan. He owns a costume jewelry shop in the market that is the only source of income for his family. Arshad is interested in expanding the variety of jewelry he offers to his customers which will help to also increase his net income and savings. He does not have the capital to purchase more jewelry.

Arshad is requesting a loan through the Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase a variety of costume jewelry to sell at his shop at a profitable price. With the profit from his loan he hopes to expand his business save for his children’s future. Arshad is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakiatan.
