Shahid Mahmood
Mr. Shahid is a 37-year-old man living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. Mr. Shahid is a father of five children, and he has to support his family alone. He is a hardworking and a gentle person. He owns a chicken shop in the area. It is the only source of income for his family.

Mr. Shahid has requested a loan amount of 120,000 PKR from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase chicken. Last month he had a financial loss in his business. Because of that, he has insufficient money for purchasing new inventory for his butcher shop. He hopes that through this loan he can easily start his business again with better turnover. Mr. Shahid is very thankful and full of joy.
