Adeel's story

Mr. Adeel is a 27-year-old man. He lives with his family in Punjab, Pakistan. Since 2005, Adeel 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 sells a variety of daily-use products in his store, including milk, ice cream, cooking oil, candies, biscuits, popcorn, chips, etc.

His monthly net income is inadequate to cope with the family needs and expenses, so he is planning to add more variety of products to sell in his shop. However, due to financial constraints, he finds it difficult. Therefore, he has requested a Kiva loan from Kiva's field partner BRAC Pakistan. With the help of the loan amount, he would purchase cooking oil, flour, rice and yogurt to sell. This will not only help him to attract more customers, but will also increase his net income and savings, which would be helpful for him to meet his family needs and expenses more efficiently. He is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
