A loan helped to buy good quality fodder for her animals.


Shela's story

Shela is a 34-year-old woman, married, and has 4 children. Her husband is a farmer. She lives in a small village of Sheikhupura, Pakistan. A few years ago, she started her livestock business in her area to sell for meat. She earns a good reward for her services.

She buys animals (baby goats and calves) at low prices, brings them up, and then sells them out in the market at higher prices. She makes enough through her business to contribute to the family income. She also sells milk to generate an extra amount of income.

Therefore, she is requesting a loan from JWS Pakistan to buy good quality fodder for them, to raise them and thus be able to increase her production and improve her income considerably.

She is thankful to Kiva and JWS Pakistan.
