A loan of $1,100 helped a member to buy another buffalo for milk-selling business.

Surriya's Group's story

Surriya is a widow. Her husband died suddenly a few years ago. It was a very difficult time for Surriya but she never lost heart and worked very hard to raise her children. She is the mother of 3 sons, all of who left their education after 5th grade and started work to contribute financially to the family.

She performed her duties as a seamstress and started getting orders from her neighbors. She made her neighbors become regular customers due to the good-quality work she produces. Now she receives regular orders every month which enables her to generate income for her family.

She also has a buffalo whose milk she sells to her neighborhood clients and milk shops to earn extra profits. Surriya has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the further expansion of her milk-selling business. With the loan, she will buy another buffalo that will allow her to get larger quantities of milk and increase her profits. She is hopeful that this investment will be more profitable for her.
