He is a milkman, by profession. Irfan sells milk to his hometown and bull calves to the butcher. He has four cows and he milks twice a day. He delivers the milk to his customers and collects payment on a monthly basis. Irfan plans to add a buffalo to his herd because they can provide more milk than a cow. A buffalo is also more expensive and he does not have enough savings.
Irfan requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan, to buy one buffalo to increase his milk production. He also wants to maintain his cowshed.
