The American Dream is about inspiring people to think big and use pure ingenuity to create a business that is beneficial to all. Khawar is a perfect example of this dream and the drive to succeed.

Born in Pakistan, Khawar built a 15-year-career drawing from his degrees in management, physics and applied mathematics. A background in these fields has led to the pursuit of a start-up venture in the green industry and his current job at Giant Stadium is a far cry from where his ambition could take him.

With this loan from ACCION USA, Khawar will be developing a prototype of the solar-powered air conditioner/chiller. While production and design are in their early stages, the goal is to create technology that will meet the energy needs of the developing world in a way that is sustainable financially and environmentally.

This capital and the support of his family will give Khawar the foundation for success as a social entrepreneur.
