A loan of $1,250 helped a member to buy another buffalo for a dairy business.

Razia's Group's story

Razia lives in a small city of Punjab, Pakistan, called Kasur. It is well known for its tanneries industry. Her home consists of two rooms and is made of bricks. Her husband’s name is J. I. and he is involved in a dairy business. He keeps some goats and a buffalo at home. He gets up early in the morning and gets milk from the cattle to sell in the community to earn good profits.

Razia herself is a housewife. She stays at home and does her household responsibilities. In her spare time, she also takes care of the cattle by providing them with timely food and water. She has given birth to six children. Her eldest son is a daily wage labor while one daughter does embroidery work for clients in the community. The remaining children are getting their education and studying in different classes.

Razia has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, to buy another buffalo which will help her husband increase milk productivity and sales. Her husband has been operating his business for the past three years and Razia is hopeful that an investment will help him provide better financial facilities for the family as a result. She is a new loan user and this is her first loan application to Asasah.
