M. Iqbal
M. Iqbal is 57, living with his family in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

He has been running a small general store for five years; earlier he had a job in a government sector. After retirement, he established a general store with the help of a graduity amount (small bonus) so that he can equally participate in household expenses. His shop is situated in a populated area, and there are a lot of customers available here to buy miscellaneous general store items. He wants to offer all those products which are necessary and consumable for daily usage. He wants to offer additional bakery items such as bread, jam, milk, cookies, butter, sandwiches, pattis, etc. But the major problem is the shortage of funds.

Therefore, M. Iqbal requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, so he would be able to buy additional bakery items such as bread, jam, milk, cookies, butter, sandwiches, pattis, etc.

He is very glad after taking this loan, hopeful that he will be successful in fulfilling each request for any item, and abstain from the disappointment of his customers. In this way he will be able to generate maximum profit from the sale of additional bakery items.

M. Iqbal is very thankful to Kiva and their field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
