M. Shahbaz is a 34-year-old married man who lives with his spouse and five children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. He owns a car rental business in which he provides motor cars on rent to the general public, especially for wedding ceremonies. He also provides services as a guide for tourists and shows them the historical places by driving a motor car in Lahore, city. He has been doing this work for many years. To carry out his work, he has to stay at the shop to deal with the general public. He has only one car to provide services; he wants to buy another new car to cope with the demand but due to the high cost he is unable to purchase one.

Therefore, M. Shahbaz has requested a Kiva loan through BRAC Pakistan, so he can buy an additional car with the contribution of his savings. In this way he will be able to provide better services and can generate sufficient income to cherish his family members.

This will be his first loan with Kiva, and he hopes that with your cooperation he will be able to carry out his plans. He promises to make his payments on time.
