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

A loan helped to buy a buffalo for increasing milk production and income so he can afford his assistant's salary.

M. Yasin's story

M. Yasin is 49, living in the rural area of Lahore, Pakistan. He is a very hardworking and gentle person. He is responsible for his ten children and old parents as well.

M. Yasin is a milkman by profession and sells milk in his community. He has been selling milk since 1993, so now he is very expert and experienced in his profession of producing milk from a buffalo; he produces milk from his all buffaloes in no time. He has many buffaloes. This is the reason he has to do very hard work to feed them. Every day he takes his herd to the pasture for grazing, gives them a bath in the stream, and he has to stay with them the whole day due to a fear of theft. He has not much time for his family members.

M. Yasin wants to get an assistant to look after his cattle, but he does not earn enough profit to afford the salary.

M. Yasin is receiving his second loan, and he has been investing his previous loan in the same business. With the help of last loan, he has purchased a buffalo and has benefited from that buffalo. He still wants to establish his business, and wants to buy another buffalo, so that he can increase his monthly income, get an assistant, and spend some time with his family.

Therefore, M. Yasin has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
M. Yasin thanks Kiva and field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
