Sonia is 29 years old, married and has four children. Two of her children study while the others are less than four years of age and have not started their education yet.
Sonia's husband sells milk. He has two buffalo and three cows at home. He milks them twice a day and sells the milk to customers in his community. His rates are reasonable, which is why he has a good number of customers in his area. In order to financially support her husband, Sonia sews clothes. She is very good at her work and receives a good number of orders every month. She also carries out her responsibilities as a housewife very well. Sonia has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, for her husband so that he can buy another buffalo to increase milk productivity and sales. He has been operating this business for the past 20 years and Sonia hopes that an investment will bring more profits to him.
