A loan of $1,450 helped pay for his wedding dowry.


Jamshed's story

Jamshed is a hardworking, cheerful man. He is the oldest son in his family and only lives with his mother these days as his father died a few years ago. He has been working as a carpenter for more than 5 years, and has a lot of experience building and renovating peoples' homes. By doing this work, he not only earns his own keep, but helps support his mother as well.

Jamshed is preparing to get married soon as he feels it's time to start a family of his own. His mother is helping him with the preparations; he needs to buy a number of things for a wedding dowry, as well as furniture and appliances for a new apartment. He recently found out about Kiva and has decided to seek a loan through Arvand to pay for his wedding dowry. He is hoping for a positive outcome, and would like to thank Arvand in advance for their support.
