Usman's story

Mr. Usman is a 28-year-old married man and active borrower of BRAC Pakistan, living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. He has a wife and two children. Usman's wife is a very hardworking and responsible housewife who always helps her husband. Since 2004, Usman has been running a cosmetics shop which is the only source of income for his family. Currently he is in need of purchasing more cosmetics products to expand his business, but due to financial constraints he finds it difficult. For that reason, he has requested a loan amount of 100,000 PKR from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. This will not only help him to grow his cosmetics business but will increase his net income and savings as well. He desires to provide quality education to his children. He is very much thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
