A loan of $775 helped a member to buy goats to sell.


Razia's Group's story

Razia is a very caring lady. She responsibly carries out her duties as a housewife and a mother. She also has a business selling goats, which she started a few years ago to help her husband financially. The business has earned her a good profit and she easily pays the utilities expenses. She is the mother of four children, two sons and two daughters. Her first two children are enrolled in school and are in the 4th and 3rd class. The other two are too young to attend school.

Razia is a resident of Jaranwala, which is a small city located in the Punjab province of Pakistan and known for its agriculture industry.
Her husband’s name is G. A. and he is a tractor driver. He drives a tractor in the fields and also uses it for loading items. He loads different items, such as fruits and vegetables, and drops them at their designated places.

Razia has applied for a loan from the Kiva partner Asasah for her animal selling business. With the loan, she will buy goats to increase her sales. She sells goats mainly to butcher shops. She is hopeful that her decision of getting a loan and investing it in her business will be profitable for her family, and that she will be able to repay the loan without any problems. She is a new loan applicant and hopes that it will be a good experience for her.
