Afzal's story

Mr. Afzal is 33 years old. He lives in Punjab, Pakistan, with his family. His family is comprised of two children and his wife. Afzal has been running an embroidery supplies shop for 12 years. Presently, he is in need of purchasing new embroidery items, because his current stock is almost finished. Therefore, he has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan, to expand his business. With the loan financing, he would add more space to his shop. In addition, he would purchase new inventory, including cloth, needles, lace, and a variety of stones and thread, to resell at his shop.

He is currently living in a rented house, so his wish is to purchase his own house in future. He is hopeful that the loan will be a progressive one, for his family.
