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


Tasleem's Group's story

Tasleem lives in Kasur, which is known for its tannery industry. It is located in Punjab, Pakistan and is an old historic city. She is married to R. A. who has a dairy business. He has some buffalos at his home. He gets up early in the morning and gets milk from his buffalos. He then sells that milk to his community clients and generates income for the family. Tasleem herself is a housewife who stays at home and does her household work. In her spare time, she also supports her husband by taking care of his cattle and getting milk from them.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah because her husband wants to buy another buffalo to expand his dairy business. By purchasing another buffalo, he will be able to increase the milk production to sell to more customers to earn better profits. Tasleem is hopeful that a loan will help her husband make more profits and improve the living standards of his family. She is a new loan applicant and this is her first loan application to Asasah.
