Shabir
Shabir is a 27-year-old man who lives with his family in Lahore, Pakistan. Since 2005 Shabir has been running his own hotel near his house, which is a very successful business for his family. He is an active borrower of BRAC Pakistan.

He is currently in need of purchasing some products for his hotel including beans, eggs, and mutton for cooking. Due to financial constraints, he finds it difficult to purchase these items. Therefore, he has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan. This will not only help him to grow his business but will also increase his net income and savings. He is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
