A loan helped to purchase more cattle for reselling in the market.


Rehana's story

Rehana is a 40-year-old, married woman and mother of four children. It was hard for her to manage her household expenses with the small income of her husband. Thus, some years ago she started her business of selling cattle in her community. Her husband fully supports and assists her with her work. Now, Rehana has requested a loan of 100,000 Pakistani rupees (PKR). She wants to use this loan amount to purchase more cattle for reselling in the market. Rehana has gained great business confidence as she has learnt how to deal with other individuals within the business, allowing her to feel empowered.
