Ziarat Ali's story

Ziarat Ali is a 36-year-old married man, living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan, with his spouse and three children. He has been running a small printing press for three years. Flex is a sheet of polythene widely used to deliver high quality digital print for outdoor hoardings and banners mainly printed by large color plotters. These prints are used instead of handwritten banners due to their low cost and durability. He prints advertisement banners and logos on order.

Ziarat belongs to a poor family and is the single responsible person for his children, and elderly parents as well. His parents most of the time remain sick; he has to spend a large part of his income on medical care. He wants to grow his business so he can easily generate additional income than in the past so he can cherish his children and can bear the medical expenses of his parents.

Therefore, Ziarat Ali has requested a Kiva loan so he can buy polythene sheets and colors plotters to print more flex. In this way; he can easily generate additional income for his family. He deserves Kiva support; he hopes that the Kiva lenders will support him.

Ziarat Ali is very thankful to Kiva and field partner BRAC Pakistan.
