A loan of $975 helped to buy a buffalo to increase milk production and sales.

Irfan's story

Irfan, 24, is a young and energetic man living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. He has worked in this business for many years and earns a reasonable income for his family. Since his brother and sisters are young and his father has grown old and does not work, Irfan provides comfort to his parents and younger siblings.

He is a milkman, by profession. Irfan sells milk to his hometown and bull calves to the butcher. He has four cows and he milks twice a day. He delivers the milk to his customers and collects payment on a monthly basis. Irfan plans to add a buffalo to his herd because they can provide more milk than a cow. A buffalo is also more expensive and he does not have enough savings.

Irfan requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan, to buy one buffalo to increase his milk production. He also wants to maintain his cowshed.
