A loan of $1,700 helped a member to construct a new room for her poultry farm.

Farzana's Group's story

Farzana is a 35-year-old, hardworking woman. She lives in Punjab, Pakistan with her husband, 2 sons and 2 daughters. All of her children are studying. Her husband is a taxi driver. She herself has run her own poultry farm at home since 2005.

On the upper floor of her house, Farzana has made a small poultry farm based on two rooms in which she keeps poultry like hens and birds. The area is much too congested so she wants to construct one more room. And for that purpose, as a member of a 9-person lending group, Farzana has requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan. This will not only help her to grow her business, but will also increase their net income as well as savings. With the profit amount, she will meet household expenses and will open a new egg shop in the market. Farzana is dreaming for her daughter that she will get married soon. Many thanks and kind regards from her to all staff of Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
