A loan of $425 helped to purchase another buffalo.


Zareena's story

Zareena is a 31-year-old married woman. She is a mother of four; two of them are school-going.

She is efficiently performing a business of milk sales with the support of her husband. They have been doing it together for the past ten years. Now they have eight buffaloes and two cows. (The man shown in the photo is Zareena’s husband.)

Every morning she milks her cows and buffaloes and prepares liters of milk that her husband takes to the market to sell along with butter, cheese and ghee that Zareena makes from the milk. Because of her work, she is respected in her home. She helps her husband in all family matters as well as financial matters. They make enough to bear the expenses of the family members.

She needs to expand her business to fulfill the demands of her children, including food, clothing and education. She has some savings and has applied for a loan of PKR 40,000 to purchase another buffalo. In this way she will be able to cater to more customers, which will ultimately help in bringing more cash to her home. She desires to use the part of the revenue on the improvement of her house.
