A loan of $325 helped to buy one more cow for milk production.

Rasheedan's story

Rasheedan is a 42-year-old married woman who has been selling milk for many years. She has 3 cows and 1 buffalo to milk. When she first started working with livestock, she used to purchase goats and sheep and sell them at the festival of Eid-ul-Azha. Gradually Rasheedan purchased cows and buffaloes so she could move from livestock sales into milk production. She sells the milk to many of her neighbors, along with butter, cheese and ghee that she makes from the milk, and she is proud to maintain a good client list. Her business is good enough for her to lead a decent life.

Rasheedan is a mother of four: two daughter and two sons. Her husband also helps in her business. She has already been a borrower previously and has a strong relationship with Kashf foundation, Kiva's field partner. Now she is requesting a loan of 30,000 PKR so she can buy one more cow and increase her milk production capacity. This would allow her to serve more people in her community.
