Arif's story

Mr. Arif is a 29-year-old man who lives with his family in Lahore, Pakistan. He is an active borrower of BRAC Pakistan. He belongs to a poor family. He is a father of three sons and two daughters. Two of his sons are working in a factory as labourers.

Arif makes clothes by purchasing rough and waste cotton. He purchases rough and scrap cotton, categorizes them and manufactures new cotton cloth. His work is very complicated and needs a lot of time and hard work. He loves his work.

He has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase cotton to manufacture cloth. He promises to pay back the loan on time. He wants to buy his own godown (warehouse) in the future to store sacks of multi-colour cotton.

He is thankful to BRAC Pakistan and Kiva lenders for great and kind support.
