M. Javaid Ahmed's story
M. Javaid Ahmed is a 45-year-old married man living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. He is the father of two daughters and two sons. His daughters have reached the age of marriage, but he does not have enough savings to arrange a dowry for them. He is growing old with the passage of time and always worries about the future of his daughters. One son has a job in an industry, and one son attends college. He has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, so he can buy rexine, leather, shoe polish, buckles, nails, and thread for making shoes. He is a shoemaker and wholesaler by profession and has been making shoes for many years. Now, he is one of the finest professional shoemakers in the market. He makes shoes by hand for both genders with the help of cobblers, and his handmade shoes are very famous in his hometown. M. Javaid Ahmed wants to grow his business so that he can increase his savings for his daughters' dowries. He has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, so that he can make his ambitions come true. He will use the full amount for increasing business so that he can eliminate his worries. He is very thankful to Kiva and its field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
