Arqam's story

Arqam is 25 years old and an energetic and honest man who lives with his parents in the area of Lahore. He is a wholesaler of rice; he buys the rice from harvesters at a low price and sells in Lahore city to the retailers. He buys rice of various kinds such as basmati and super kernel from the field. He has been doing the same practice for many years and has many reputable retailers who like to buy rice from him in large quantities. He has built up a positive relationship among the retailers and they help him promote his business as well. With the increase in new customers, he wants to buy rice in large quantities so he can easily cope with the higher demand. In this way, he would be able to increase his monthly income and savings as well. Arqam is grateful for this honorable support and thanks Kiva and field partner BRAC Pakistan.
