Manzoor's story

Manzoor, aged 49 years, is the responsible father of 7 children. He has been running his business for many years; in fact he has been selling ladies' clothes from the beginning. Now his customers demand gentlemen's clothes also, so he decided to increase the stock in his shop. His shop is situated near his house in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. One of his sons helps him with selling clothes. He has allotted this shop to his son. He wants that his son will devote his full time in the shop so that his business could progress by day and night.

Manzoor belongs to the middle standard family; he could not provide a better education to his children. Some of his children got educated through matriculation and now they are working. He had been facing a tough time due to the single source of income. Now his children are earning a sufficient amount to run a house. All of his sons contribute to household expenses.

Manzoor requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan so that he could buy gentlemen’s clothes to sell. Manzoor seems happy after taking this loan.
