M. Mateen is a 45-year-old married man, living with his family in the area of Multan, Pakistan. He has been running a general store for eight years and generating income for his family. He sells general store items such as flour, sugar, milk packs, eggs, rice, cookies, etc. M. Mateen is a business minded man. Recently, demand for more quality products has increased, but the demanded items are unavailable, so he has to refuse his valued customers. He does not have enough savings for further investment into the business. In fact, his generated income is spent on household and family miscellaneous expenses. Therefore, M. Mateen requested a loan for his business, to be empowered to buy the demanded items. He hopes that now he can grow this business, can cope with the increasing demand, and can generate more income as per his family needs. M. Mateen thanks Kiva and this field partner for this honorable support.
