Balqees, a 52-year-old married woman who sells milk, is very experienced in this work and has attained a good number of customers. She has become famous for providing good-quality milk and earns enough to contribute to her family's income. She has gradually improved her business with the support of BRAC Pakistan. She also sells animals on a seasonal basis to generate extra income.
Balqees is now requesting her sixth loan to combine with her savings to purchase an additional buffalo. She is hopeful that this loan will bring positive changes to her business.
