Shahnaz's Group's story

Shahnaz is a wife of M. S. and lives in the city of Multan, Pakistan, famous for its shrines and sweetmeats. She is an enthusiastic lady who stays at home to manage the household work, but also runs her own business sewing clothes for her neighbors in order to generate income.

Shahnaz is a mother of five children – one son and four daughters. All of her children are receiving an education from the local school. Her husband has an animal-selling business. He purchases animals from the animal markets and sells them on to customers. His customer base is mostly butchers in need of good animals who approach him because he has good knowledge of animal breeds. He has 25 years of experience in this business. Currently, the family has one cow at their home.

Shahnaz has successfully repaid her first loan to Kiva partner, Asasah (a microfinance institution in Pakistan). Now she has applied for a new loan to buy animals (a cow and goats) to expand her husband’s animal-selling business.
