Rafiqan's Group's story

Rafiqan is the wife of K. M. and lives in a small city called Jaranwala in Pakistan. Jaranwala is a city known for its agriculture industry.

A caring lady, Rafiqan stays at home and carries out her responsibilities as a housewife. Besides her household work, she also helps her husband in his dairy business. They both get up early in the morning, get milk from the buffalo, and then her husband goes to the community to sell the milk. In this way, they both generate the income to meet the basic needs of the family.

Rafiqan has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s dairy business. Through the loan, he will buy another buffalo that will help him increase milk productivity and also sales.

Rafiqan is hopeful that through the loan investment, her husband’s business will improve and he will be able to increase his monthly income as well.
