M. Boota is a 50-year-old married man, living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. He is the father of three daughters and three sons. His three daughters have reached the age of marrying but he does not have savings to arrange the dowry for them. He has grown old and always has to worry about the future of his daughters. His two sons are doing jobs in industry and one goes to college.

He is a shoemaker by profession; he has been making shoes for many years and now he is one the finest professional shoemakers in the market. He makes shoes by hands for both genders and his handmade shoes are very famous in his hometown. M. Boota wants to grow his business so that he can increase his savings for a dowry for his daughters.

Therefore, M. Boota requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan, so that he can make his ambitions come true. He utilizes the full amount for the establishment of business so that he can relieve his worries.
