Rasheed's story

Rasheed is a very hardworking and active borrower of BRAC Pakistan. He lives in Lahore, Pakistan with his family. His wife is a responsible housewife and all of his children are students. Since 2002, he has been running a shop selling laces and ribbons. This is the only source of income for the family.

He currently needs to purchase products for his shop but finds it difficult due to a lack of finances. Rasheed has requested a loan of 100,000 PKR from Kiva's partner,BRAC Pakistan, in order to purchase a variety of laces and ribbons. This will help him to offer more variety to his customers. He wishes to provide a quality education for his children. He is very much thankful to all the staff of Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
