A loan of $975 helped to pay the partially-invested amount to his friend in Mobile shop.


Shahzad's story

Shahzad is 28 years old, living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

Shahzad newly begins a business on partnership, in which he sells mobile phones and phone accessories. Initially, he did not have enough money to start the business, so he has taken financial help from his friend. Due to this partnership, he has to distribute the profit amount in two equal parts, which leaves him with much less. Also, his friend is not happy over the turnover, so he wants his money back. Shahzad does not have the money to pay the partially-invested amount to his friend.

Therefore, Shahzad requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, so that he could pay the borrowed money and get full control over the shop and its profits.

Shahzad is a married person and recently started in his new life. He does not want to fail in fulfilling his responsibilities. He wants to get maximum earning, so that he can create a good reputation among his family members.

This time, Shahzad is hopeful that this business will work well and he will establish it soon, so that he can earn income for his family. Shahzad is very thankful to the Kiva and to its field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
