A loan of $875 helped a member to buy another buffalo.


Bismillah's Group's story

Bismillah is 44 years of age, married and has four children. Her husband is involved in the milk selling business. For this reason, he has kept some buffalos. Two of her children work in a factory and the other two are studying. She is a housewife and does her household responsibilities by staying at home. In her spare time, she offers full support to her husband by milking the buffalo and taking care of them. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the further expansion of her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy another buffalo that will allow him to get more milk and increase his sales and profits. He is very experienced in his business and has been doing it for the past 12 years. Bismillah hopes that after the loan investment, her husband’s business will not only grow but it will also allow him to buy an asset for his business. She is a new loan applicant and very confident about the better financial future of her family. Note: In the photo, the lady raising her hand is Bismillah.
