A loan of $275 helped to purchase another buffalo.

Nooran's story

Ms. Nooran is a 54-year-old married woman and the mother of three children. She has been running a business of cattle sales and purchase for three years with the support of her husband. The man shown in the photo is Nooran’s husband.

Nooran very well looks after their cattle, while her husband assists her in selling them in the local market. They make enough to run their household expenses.

Nooran has some savings and applied for a loan of PKR 25,000 to purchase another buffalo. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Nooran is in her second loan cycle, with a good repayment history. She is very thankful to Kashf for its support.
