Saeed's story

Saeed is a 47-year-old married man. He owns a sweet shop near his home. He sells a variety of sweets, which he prepares in his home with the help of his wife. Now he is not as energetic due to his old age. Due to his weakness, he does not spend enough time at his shop. Because of this, he is unable to prepare and offer more sweets. Now his son encourages him and assures him of his help. His son promises that he will also help him to sell the sweets. Saeed has decided to add more varieties of sweets to offer his customers. But the lack of capital discourages his aims. Our field partner met with him and allowed him to request a loan after taking all the necessary information and completion of all formalities. With this loan, Saeed will buy ingredients for preparing a variety of sweets to sell. He will buy flour, sugar, oil, etc. Saeed is very hopeful that this loan will bring positive changes into his business, his profits, and that his savings will increase. Saeed thanks Kiva because they showed him a ray of hope to turn his business around.
