A loan of $1,050 helped a member to buy another buffalo for a dairy business.


Hafeez's Group's story

Hafeez is a resident of Khanewal, which is a small city located in Punjab, Pakistan, that is famous for its agriculture industry. She is 30 years old and a mother of three sons and a daughter. She is unable to provide an education to her children due to the poor financial condition of her family.

Her husband, M., is a private entrepreneur and is involved in a dairy business. For this purpose, he keeps a buffalo at his home. That gives him almost 8kg milk, which he sells for 45 Pakistan rupees (PKRs) per kg. In this way, his daily income becomes PKRs 360, which helps him to manage the financial circle of his family.

Hafeez is a housewife. She prefers to stay at home and take care of her family. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s business. With the loan, her husband will buy another buffalo for his dairy business and increase the milk productivity.

Hafeez is hopeful that her husband will successfully be able to increase his profits by utilizing the money positively. She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her second loan application. In the previous year, she has built good credit behavior and never missed any meetings.
