A loan of $2,900 helped to purchase an oven.

Shirvan's story

Shirvan is a 33-year-old, hard working Iraqi man. He is married and is the father of two children.

Shirvan is the owner of a typical small Middle Eastern-style fast food restaurant, where he makes delicious shawarma, either chicken or other meat, and served in a bun with both fresh and pickled vegetables. Shirvan has been running the business for three years already, and he is constantly working on improving it to offer better and better services for his customers.

Shirvan took a loan in the past which he used to renovate the shop. Having successfully repaid the previous loan, he is now taking a new loan in the amount of 2,900 USD to be able to purchase an oven.
