Tariq is living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan, with his wife and son. He owns a small jewelry shop in which he sells artificial jewelry such as bracelets, bangles, lockets, necklaces, rings and earrings. He makes golden jewelry on demand also.

As we know, the gold prices have been globally increasing, so the customers like to buy artificial jewelry instead of golden jewelry. But most of the rich persons give him orders sometimes for making golden jewelry.

This time, the same situation is happening but in large quantity. He has taken an order for making golden jewelry; the customer has given some cash in advance too. But still, now the purchase of gold are beyond Tariq's financial capacity.

Therefore, Tariq requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner’s, BRAC Pakistan, so he can buy the gold and fulfill the order on specific duration. With the help of the profit amount, he will buy the artificial jewelry over his shop to sell.

He hopes that through this loan he will be able to buy gold, fulfill the order, and get more profits than earlier.

Tariq is very thankful to Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan .
