A loan of $375 helped to buy one more buffalo, to cater to more customers.

Shamim's story

Ms. Shamim is 42 years old and a married woman. She has been running a business of caring for animals and selling their milk, with her husband, for many years. They have four buffaloes in milk, and they sell the milk to many of their neighbors, along with butter and cheese that they make from the milk. Shamim looks after the buffaloes and performs the task of collecting milk from them, while her husband sells the dairy products to different places on a daily basis. They are happily doing the work together, to support their family.

She has three daughters and three sons. Two of her children are school-going. The family needs to earn much more, to meet their everyday expenditures including food, clothing, and education. In order to make huge profits, Shamim requested a loan of PKR 35,000, which she will use to buy one more buffalo. The additional milk will enable them to cater to more customers. She hopes to get an increase in the milk-production capacity of the herd, which ultimately helps in generating more cash.
