Gulam Qamber's story

Gulam Qamber is 46-year-old energetic married man. He lives with his spouse and five children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

For the past fifteen years, Gulam has been operating a business making shoeboxes. In the beginning, the business was not profitable but over time Gulam has been able to make it successful. Gulam purchases his raw materials, which include cornstarch glue, cardboard, and colorful ink and paper, from the market. He makes the shoeboxes and sells them to shopkeepers. Gulam is able to earn people's trust and his clients increase day by day.

Gulam wants to expand his business. Therefore, Gulam is requesting a loan from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, to buy more cardboard stock. He hopes that lenders will support him and that his loan will prove productive for his business. He is very impressed with the Kiva loan cycle system and is thankful to the lenders.
