A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy goats for animal sales business.

Shamim's Group's story

Shamim, the wife of H. N., resides in a city called Khanewal in Pakistan. Khanewal is famous for its agriculture industry. She owns a two-room house there where she has been living with her family for the past 20 years. Shamim has given birth to four children: three boys and one girl. All of her children are enrolled in school and are getting their education.

Shamim is a 42-year-old housewife who prefers to stay at home to manage the household responsibilities. Her husband is involved in an animal sales business. He buys animals from the animal market at cheap rates. He raises them and then sells them to clients. He has been in this business for five years.

Shamim has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy goats and raise them to sell at a good profit.

Shamim is hopeful that through this investment her husband’s business will become improved and he will be able to serve many more clients as a result.
