M. Nawaz
M. Nawaz is 47 years old and lives with her family in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.
He is the father of three children and all of them go to school. He is a cattle trader by profession, buying cattle from different villages and selling them to the butchers. Now that Eid-ul-Azha (Muslim religious holiday) is about to come, demand for cattle will increase. In these days, he sells his cattle to the common people. Also during these days, the demand for bull calves peak. Every year in this season he offers a bull calve to the common people. He brings his all bull calves to the animal market and stays with the cattle 10 to 15 days. After selling his cattle he goes back to home to celebrate Eid festival with his family.
M. Nawaz wants to buy more bull calves to sell in the market but he lacks funds this year.
Therefore, M. Nawaz requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner so that he could buy more bull calve to sell. He hopes that he will pay all the installments on time. With the profit, he will buy new dresses and shoes for his family to celebrate the Eid festival.
He hopes that this season he will be a more profitable business than before.
M. Nawaz is very pleased after taking this loan and is thankful to the BRAC Pakistan.
