M. Asghar's story

M. Asghar owns an auto spare parts shop in the area of Lahore, Pakistan and lives near his shop. His shop is situated in the vehicle’s spare parts market and it is challenging for him to sell his product among his competitors. This competition highly effects his daily sales. To grow his business, income and differentiate from the competitors he decided to offer some additional stylish spare parts, engine oils and some ordinary spare parts to sell. He hopes that this strategy will work positively and the customers will attract towards his new products. He cannot act upon his strategy without some capital, so he has requested a kiva loan through Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan because the BRAC provides the facility to empower the poor. M. Asghar is married and he has to look after his young children and old parents as well but he hardly spends time with them due to his business. M. Asghar is tension free after receiving this loan because the BRAC showed him a beam of hope in the darkness. He is very thankful to the kiva and field partner’s BRAC Pakistan.
