M. Ashiq
M. Ashiq is 26 years old and lives in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. He has been running a general store near his house for five years and the business is operating very well. In this way he is feeding his old parents and sibling. He established the store with the help of a previous loan from BRAC. His shop is situated in a populated area, and there are a lot of customers here to buy miscellaneous general store items.

M. Ashiq wants to offer all those products which are necessary and consumable for daily use. He wants to offer stationery items such as copies, pencils, pens, pencil lead, erasers, etc. But the major problem is the shortage of funds. Therefore, M. Ashiq requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan, so that he can buy sacks of rice, sugar, and flour and additional stationery items. He was 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.

M. Ashiq 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.
