Risalat's story

Mr. Risalat is a 53-year-old man who lives with his family in Lahore, Pakistan. Since 2005 he has been running his own general store near his house, which is a very successful business for his family. He is an active borrower of BRAC Pakistan.

He is currently in need of purchasing some products for his store including powdered milk, flour, rice, chips, oil, soap, candies, etc. But, due to financial constraints, he finds it difficult. Therefore, he has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan. This will not only help him to grow his business but will also increase his net income and savings.

He is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
