Kashif Ali's story

The person who is shown in the picture is named Kashif Ali. He is 25 years old and lives in the populated area of Lahore, Pakistan. He has been successfully running a small general store for many years.

His shop is situated in a well-populated area and many customers are available here to buy miscellaneous general-store items. He wants to cope with the demand successfully, but for this purpose some stock is required. He wants to offer all those products which are necessary and consumable in the daily routine. In this way, he will be successful in winning the trust of his customers and will increase his income as well.

He wants to offer additional items such as bread, jam, a few stationery items, soft drinks, and ice cream. But he does not have enough money to buy the described items.Therefore, Kashif Ali requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, so that he would be able to buy additional items such as bread, jam, stationery items, soft drinks, ice creams, etc.

He is very glad after taking this loan and hopeful that he will be successful in fulfilling each request for any item and can abstain from the disappointment of his customers. Kashif Ali is very thankful to Kiva’s field partner’s BRAC Pakistan, and he assures us that he will pay all installments due in his first loan with regularity
