A loan of $475 helped to buy one more buffalo.


Surya's story

For about 12 years, Surya, age 35, has dealt in the business of milk sales. She has two buffaloes who give milk and sells their milk to many of her neighbors, along with butter and cheese that she makes from the milk. She is happily doing it to support her family as her husband’s income is not sufficient to meet their household expenses alone. She has four daughters and two sons, four of them are school going. In order to increase her sales, she needs to buy one more buffalo to carter to more customers. For this reason she applied for a loan of Rs. 45000 from Kiva partner the Kashf foundation. She is in her fifth loan cycle with a good repayment history. She wishes to spend part of the profits on providing a better standard of living to her children.
