Ghulam Rasool's story

Ghulam Rasool owns an electrical and hardware goods shop in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. He lives near his shop, which is situated in the market, but it is challenging for him to sell his products near his competitors. He wants to offer some sanitation goods as well, because there is a customer demand for the these sanitation goods. However, he cannot act upon his strategy without some capital. He tried to get a loan from banks and other organizations, but they refused to give him a loan. He requests a loan from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, so that he can buy santitaion goods to sell.

Ghulam Rasool is a married man and he has to look after his young children and aging parents, who he hardly spends time with due to his business.
Ghulam Rasool is now stress free after taking out a loan, because BRAC showed him a beam of hope in the darkness. He is very thankful to Kiva and their field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
