A loan of $1,150 helped a member to buy billy goats to sell before Eid.

Hafeez Begum's Group's story

Hafeez Begum is 53, married, mother of a daughter, and living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. Her daughter has gotten married and living in her home happily.

Hafeez Begum's husband owns a livestock trading business and does most of his trading within the city. He purchase goats and billy goats from rural areas and sells them in the city. He has to feed and look after his livestock which is very tough for him in his old age. He is making an effort and earning money for the survival of both of them.

He wants to buy billy goats to sell because the Eid-ul-Azha is about to come and many people like to buy billy goats to sacrifice on Eid-Ul-Azha. This is very profitable but he does not have enough savings to buy billy goats.

Therefore, Hafeez Begum requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan, so that her husband could buy billy goats to sell. And he could earn maximum profit so they can spend their old ages with peace and calm.

Hafeez Begum is very pleased after taking this loan and thankful to the BRAC Pakistan.
