A loan of $400 helped to purchase livestock feed and goats for her husband's livestock business.

Sarwar's story

Sarwar is a 47-year-old woman who is living in Punjab, Pakistan, with her husband and five children.

Her husband owns a small livestock farm, the only source of income for his family. He sells sheep, goats, cows, etc. He raises livestock and then sells them in the market at a good price. He is the only person in the family earning a living. He has lots of expenses to pay for that include, gas, electricity, water bills, children's school fees, other household needs and livestock feed. In addition to all this, he looks after the livestock alone. His net income is too low to meet all these expenses.

Sarwar has requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan with the goal of helping her husband to purchase feed and goats for the farm. This will help him to increase his sales, which will be helpful for him to gradually increase his net income as well.

Sarwar dreams of her children's bright future and prays for her husband's good health. She wants to say that Brac is working very well in the field of microfinance, and she is very thankful to BRAC and Kiva for helping her.
