A loan of $1,100 helped to buy many things for his shop.

Ajmal's story

Ajmal, son of A. H., graduated from high school last year. He is 23 and has three children. Ajmal and his family returned to Afghanistan in 2002 from 18 years of living in refugee camps in neighboring Pakistan. Ajmal and his extended family live in Jalalabad city of the eastern Ningarhar province.

Ajmal originally wanted to go to college and enter medical school; however, due to economic difficulties surrounding his household, he was not able to pursue his higher education goals. Instead of taking the college tests, he had to turn to his father’s retail shop to make a living. His father’s business, however, is not big enough to support the whole household, including Ajmal’s wife and kids.

Ajmal has decided to join his father’s business and enlarge the store’s inventory to increase profitability. With taking out a loan, Ajmal will be able to not only increase the family store’s daily profit and support the cost of living for the household, but also be able to pursue his educational goals. He will attend to the shop half the day and go to college the second half. He has applied for a 50,000 Afghani loan to achieve this goal.
