Safdar's story

Safdar owns a shoe shop in the area of Punjab, Pakistan. He is an active borrower of BRAC, Pakistan. He has a large family, consisting of his wife and seven children. He is the only earning person for his family. His expenses are much higher then his monthly net income. He has to pay for all the utility bills, electricity bills, gas and water bills alone. Beside all these bills, he has to pay for the children's education fee, and he has to meet other family expenditures alone. However, his monthly income is very low to meet all the expenses.

He is planning to add more variety to his shop so that he can increase his selling and net income. However, due to financial constraints he finds it difficult. Therefore, he has requested a Kiva loan from Kiva's field partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase a good variety of shoes to sell. By doing so, he can attract more customers and he can increase his net income and savings as well.

Safdar is very much thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
