Saleem's story

Saleem is a 40-year-old hard-working man. He lives with his wife and four sons in Punjab, Pakistan.

Since 2005, Saleem has had a general store, and he works very hard to meet his family's needs. He needs additional capital for the growth of his business. For that reason, he has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan.

With the loan money, he can buy a variety of goods for his general store, including biscuits, chips, juices and sweets to satisfy his clients more professionally as well as to increase his savings for a better future for his children.

Saleem is very hopeful that the loan will be a lucky and productive one for his family and business.
