A loan of $1,200 helped a member to purchase milk from the farm to resell.


Haleema's Group's story

Haleema lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She has her hand raised in the photograph. Haleema is a responsible mother to her five children and is an active BRAC Pakistan borrower. Haleema's husband has been in the business of selling milk since 2000. His business is the sole source of income for the family. He purchases milk from the dairy farm and sells it at the local market. Haleema's husband needs to purchase more milk to continue his business, but he faces financial constraints. Therefore, Haleema, who is a member of a three-person loan group, has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan. The loan will not only help Haleema's husband expand his milk-selling business but will also increase his net income and savings. Haleema desires to provide her children with a quality education. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
