Zaheer is 39 years old. He lives in Pakistan with his wife, two sons and a daughter. He owns a food stall in the market, where he sells tasty and delicious kabab. His income is too low to cover their household expenses.

Presently, he is in need of purchasing oil, eggs, pulses (lentils) and beef for preparing kabab. For that reason, he has requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase the needed food items for his stall.

With the profit he will first pay back the loan. Zaheer's dream is to provide the best and quality education to his children. He wants to thank all the BRAC staff for being so co-operative.
