Patras Masih's story

Patras Masih is a very hard-working and active borrower with Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. He is thirty-five years old and lives in Rawalpindi with his family: a decent and responsible housewife and three children. Since 2006, Patras Masih has been running a small cloth and garment shop in the market. This shop is the only source of income for his family. He wants to purchase a variety of clothing, such as pants, dress shirts, suits, sweaters, coats, gloves, mufflers and school jerseys. To do this, he has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan. The loan will help him to offer a variety of products to his clients and increase his net income as well. Patras Masih dreams of growing his business so that his children can have a better future. Patras Masih's family sends loads of prayers and thanks to all of the staff of Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
