Amin is a 39-year-old man. He lives with his family in Punjab, Pakistan, and is the father of 3 daughters and son.

Since 2002, he has been running a general store, which is the only source of income for his family. He works very hard to meet his family's needs. Amin needs additional capital to grow his business and he has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan, to purchase wheat, flour, rice, pulses, detergent, soap, etc. This will help him to satisfy his clients and save for his children's future.

Amin is very hopeful that the loan will be a lucky and productive one for his family. He is thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
