A loan of $1,300 helped a member to buy another buffalo for milk sales business.

Safia's Group's story

Safia is a very supportive lady by nature and belongs to Kamoki, which is a small city of Punjab, Pakistan, famous for its agriculture industry. She has been living there in the area of Bilal Park in a 4-room house with her family for the past 20 years.

Her husband whose name is M. S. is a milk man by profession. He milks the buffalo, getting up early in the morning. Safia helps him by putting the milk into milk jars. He sells the milk to his community clients.

Safia is also a very good housewife and fulfills her responsibilities very well. She has given birth to one son who is an embroidery expert. Safia couldn’t provide him education due to financial constraints. He operates his embroidery shop in the market and earns good profits from it.

Safia has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to help her husband in his business. With the loan, he will buy another buffalo to increase the productivity of milk so he can sell to more people. Safia is hopeful that the loan investment will further improve his milk sales business.

She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 4th loan application. In previous loan years, she has proved herself as a responsible client who always paid her installments on time and never missed a single meeting.

Note: In the photo, the lady with a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Safia.
