A loan of $975 helped a member to construct a small dairy farm for her milk-selling business.

Shehnaz's Group's story

Shehnaz is a 50-year-old married woman and a mother of four children -- two sons and two daughters. Her husband is a government employee. Both daughters are married, an elder son is a government employee, and the younger one is a taxi driver.

Since 2004 Shahnaz has been in the business of selling milk, which comes from her three buffaloes. She provides a valuable service in her community by selling milk to many of her neighbors. Her sons help her with her business, as does her husband.

As the winter season has started she wants to construct a small dairy farm consisting of two rooms outside of her house to protect the animals from the severe cold. However, due to the lack of finances she is unable to do this.

As a member of four-person lending group she has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan.

She hopes to get more profit from her small dairy business and desires to buy one cow from the profit amount in the future.

She is very much thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
