A loan of $875 helped a member to buy fertilizer and seeds.

Irshaad's Group's story

Irshaad has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, to financially assist her son in his agriculture business. He works in the fields and grows different seasonal crops. With this loan, he will purchase fertilizers and seeds, etc., which will help him grow crops and earn good income. Irshaad is hopeful that her son, who has been operating this business for the past five years, will get the desired results from his work with the loan investment.

Irshaad is a very supportive lady. In order to financially assist her family, she sells milk. She has a buffalo at home whose milk she sells to clients in her community at a reasonable rate. Her buffalo produces 8-10 kg of milk per day and she sells 1 kg of milk at approximately 45 Pakistani rupees which is almost the same price in every city. Her earned income allows her to pay off the utilities and to manage the financial affairs of her family smoothly.

Irshaad has three other sons and three daughters. Her sons do different kinds of businesses and play their part for the financial survival of their family. Her daughters stay at home and help their mother in her daily works. Irshaad has been living in the city of Jaranwala for the past many years. Jaranwala is a small city in Punjab, Pakistan, known for its agricultural industry. She lives with her family in a two-room brick house.

Irshaad is a regular client of Asasah and this is her second loan application. In her previous loan year, she established good credit behavior and never missed a meeting.
