He successfully runs a small café in a nearby town where he offers cold drinks, chips, spicy food items, and sandwiches. Usually his clients are workers and laborers from the construction companies in his town. Every morning he goes to the market to buy food products for his employees to prepare meals to sell.
Shehzad’s café is open from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Nowadays, the population of laborers has increased and the demand for food items as well. He does not feel calm due to the rush in front of his café and the lack manageable seating arrangements.
Therefore, Shehazad has requested a loan from BRAC Pakistan (a field partner of Kiva) to buy more spicy foods and plastic furniture for sitting in his café.
Shehzad thanks Kiva and its field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
