Khawer's story

The person shown in the picture is Khawer, 40 years old, and living in the populated area of Lahore, Pakistan. He has been running a small general store for several years and it's working very well. He is the father of a son who mostly remains sick. He checked him up at the specialist, but now his disease is still constant. He does not have more kids, so that he wants to see his son healed and healthy. For this purpose, he has been spending a lot of money. Khawer has to generate maximum profits from his current enterprise so that he can easily provide medical treatments to his son. He wants to increase the stock in the general store so that he can get maximum profit. Therefore, Khawer requested a loan from Kvia’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, so that he would be able to buy sacks of flour, sugar, cooking oil, etc. Khawer is very glad after taking this loan, and hopeful that he will succeed in getting the maximum income this time so he can provide better medical facility to his son. Khawer is very thankful to Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
