Arshad's story

Arshad is a 51-year-old married man who lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with his family. He is an active BRAC Pakistan borrower. Arshad’s wife is a very hardworking and responsible housewife. Since 2004, he has been running a uniform-selling shop which is the only source of income for his family. Currently, Arshad is interested in purchasing another shop to expand his business but finds this difficult due to financial constraints. Arshad is requesting a 200,000 PKR loan from the Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan to pay for purchasing another shop. His loan will not only help him grow his business but will also increase his net income and savings. Arshad hopes to provide a quality education for his children. He is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
