Nadeem's story

Nadeem is a 48-year-old married man. He is an active borrower of BRAC Pakistan. He lives in Lahore, Pakistan with his family. His wife is a very hardworking and responsible housewife. He belongs to a poor family and has been sustaining his family life, although there have been many hurdles. He has many wishes for his family, such as to provide higher education for his children and to provide good facilities for his family. However he has insufficient income and savings to fulfill his dreams. Still he strongly believes that one day his life will take a good turn and Allah will shower blessings on his family.

Nadeem owns a hardware shop where he sells a variety of paints, paint brushes and paint oils. This shop is the only source of income for the family.

Currently, he is interested in purchasing a variety of paints, but finds it difficult due to financial constraints. Nadeem has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. This will not only help him to grow his business but will increase his net income and savings as well. He is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
