Riffat Bibi's Group's story

Riffat bibi is 34 years old and married with two sons. Her eldest son is eight years old while her younger one is four years old.

Riffat is an uneducated lady. She couldn’t study because her parents couldn’t send her to school due to financial constraints. But she knows the value of education; that’s why she wants to educate her children. For that purpose, she does a livestock business. She buys young animals from the animal market, raises them up and sells to customers who require them to collect money for her children’s future.

Her husband is involved in a construction supplies business. Her brother-in-law is also lives with her family and is an electrician by trade. He provides electricity repair services to his customers and earns an income.

Riffat has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her livestock business. With the loan, she will buy goats to resell at a profit. She has been operating this business for the past 15 years and is hopeful that the loan investment will bring her business to a more profitable position and allow her to send her children to school.
