Rafiq Masih's story

Rafiq Masih is 48 years old and lives in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. He has been running a general store for many years near his house and the business is operating very well. Earlier, he was selling bakery items in large quantity, but according to the customers' demand, he wants to offer rice, sugar, flour, etc. also. He does not want to refuse any product and disappoint any of his respected customers. He wants to offer all those products that are necessary and consumable in daily routine. In this way, he will successfully win the trust of his customers and increase his income as well. Therefore, Rafiq Masih requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan, so that he could buy the sacks of rice, sugar and flour. He is very glad after taking this loan and hopeful that he will successfully fulfill each request for any item and prevent the disappointment of his customers. Rafiq Masih is very thankful to Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan, and he assures that he will pay all due installments on time and with regularity.
