Shahid is a hard-working 27-year-old man who was recently married. He has been running a stationery shop for three years. He requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase some more supplies of stationery as his current stock is almost gone. He would also like to add some new items to his shop, such as files and electronic calculators. In this way his sales would increase, as would his net income. As he is living with his wife in a rented house right now, he wants to purchase his own house with the profits he earns.

More information about this loan

This loan is part of BRAC Pakistan's effort to provide credit to entrepreneurs seeking to expand their small businesses. These are individuals who have limited access to loans because their requests are too large for typical microfinance, and they lack the collateral to borrow from commercial banks. By funding this loan, you will enable a small business owner to provide new services and create new employment opportunities.
