A loan of $1,225 helped to purchase the latest cell phones and a variety of cell phone accessories to sell.


Shahbaz's story

Shahbaz owns a small cellphone shop in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. He is 37 years old and is a responsible father of nine children. Due to his large family size, he is going through serious financial problems. He wants to provide education and a better life for his children, but because of high school fees and increased market rates, he finds it very difficult.

Shahbaz wants to generate more income by increasing his cell phone-selling shop. For that, he has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan, to purchase the latest cell phones and a variety of cell phone accessories, including cell phone casings, hands free sets, data cables, and Bluetooth. With the help of the loan, he hopes for a great increase in his net income and savings.

Mr. Shahbaz is very thankful to the all staff of Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
