Kiva Loan Dedication



Allahverdi is a 55-year-old man who is married and has three children. He is an IDP (Internally Displaced Person) and lives in an IDP settlement. Allahverdi is a blacksmith and his primary business is making doors and fenders from iron. He has 15 year of experience in this field. His son helps him to take and implement orders. Allahverdi's products are very popular and in high demand, however there is lack in materials because the cost is high. Allahverdi applied for 1900 AZN to purchase materials. This will be his second loan and he has a good client history.

To: Cindy

I chose this loan because... Cindy will appreciate the fact that we're gonna need high quality metal gates for when the zombie apocalypse happens. So, this loan is for her.
