Shakeela's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped Shakeela to buy another buffalo to help generate more income for the family.

Shakeela's story

Shakeela is 24 years old, married and the mother of two children. Like many women it was financial constraints that played a potent factor in encouraging Shakeela to approach Kiva's field partner Kashf Foundation in search of a loan to help support her family.

Shakeela owns buffaloes that she keeps for their milk. She sells it and is known in her town for the milk’s good quality. She is happy to be able to contribute toward her family’s wellbeing.

Shakeela has applied for a 45,000 PKR to buy another buffalo. More milk will help generate more income to cover the family’s daily expenses.
