Mustafa is a 29-year-old active borrower of BRAC Pakistan. He resides in Karachi, Pakistan. He has been running his own small enterprise for many years providing sewing services for men's shirts. This is the only source of income for his family.

Mustafa needs to buy a new sewing machine and cloth in bulk. Due to financial constraints, he is unable to buy these items that will fulfill his business needs. Therefore, he has applied for a Kiva loan from field partner BRAC Pakistan.

With the help of this loan he will purchase these items for his business so that he can earn more profitable income. Mustafa is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan for this financial support.
