Razia, age 38, deals in the business of animal sales. She buys baby goats, heifers, bull calfs, etc. at low prices, brings them up and then sells them out in the market at higher prices near the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha (a religious event in Muslim countries). The bull calfs go to the butchers.

She makes enough through her business to contribute to the family income, but she needs to improve her business to bear her household expenses.

For this reason, she contacted BRAC Pakistan and applied for a loan to purchase more cattle.

She is very experienced, and has good contacts in the market. With this loan, she will definitely expand her business and income as well.

Razia thanks Kiva and the field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
