A loan of $1,850 helped to buy swings to provide entertainment services to the children.

Maqsood's story

Maqsood is a 44-year-old married man living with his three children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. His profession is providing swing services in the parks and streets for children to have fun. He has been doing this business for many years; he has various types of swings to provide fun to the children. With the passage of time, most of his swings have become out of order. He is now unable to provide entertainment to the children. Children are insisting to play on those broken swings, but he is unable to provide them those swings. Maqsood requested a loan from Kiva's field partner, BRAC Pakistan, so that he can buy those missing swings. He hopes that he will successfully provide those swings to the children and can entertain the children again. Maqsood extends thanks to Kiva and field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
