A loan of $1,125 helped a member to purchase a new buffalo.


Shazia's Group's story

Shazia is a 33-year-old hardworking woman living with her husband and three children in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. They have three buffalo and her husband sells buffalo milk to their neighbors and other people, which is the only source of income for their family. She wants to sell milk, yogurt and butter in the market on a large scale, for which the production should be increased. Shazia is facing a very difficult time as her monthly income is insufficient to meet household expenses. As a member of four-person group, Shazia has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner, BRAC Pakistan, to buy a new buffalo in order to increase the production of milk and increase her monthly income. After receiving the profits, she is planning to send her children to school. She is very hopeful that the loan will be a productive one for them. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan for their support.
