Nadeem's story

Nadeem is a 28-year-old, married man, living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. He is the father of a son. He owns a small business, selling ready-made garments at a shop. He purchased ready-made garments from the market at a low price and he sells them at a high price. The women of the town like his clothing selection for dresses and they demand a greater variety to wear at wedding ceremonies. Nadeem also has a big collection of children's garments, as well. To the women, he suggests which dress suits them, which clothes suit their children, and which ones they should wear, according to the occasion. Nadeem speaks with monotonous tone which is impressive and he easily wins the trust of his clients. Due to his behavior and tone, he has built up a very good relationship with his customers. He does not have any other source of income except for this enterprise. Due to a rapid increase in household expenses and with the increase in inflation, Nadeem wants to grow his income, as well. Due to good relations, his sales have increased a lot, but he does not have sufficient stocks to cope with the demand. Therefore, Nadeem requested a loan for his garment shop, so that he can buy more stocks of ready-made garments to sell. He hopes that this loan will prove productive and beneficial for his business, as well as for his family. Nadeem gives thanks to Kiva, honorable lenders, and Brac Pakistan for this honorable support.
