A loan of $1,425 helped to buy an additional buffalo for breeding.


Boota's story

Boota is a 39-year-old, energetic man living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. His siblings are still young; his father has grown old and does not have a job. All Boota's efforts are for providing comfort to his parents and his siblings.

Boota is a milkman by profession; he sells milk to customers and bull calves to the butcher. He has been doing this business for many years and earns a reasonable income for his family. He has a few buffaloes, which he milks twice a day. He provides door-to-door milk service to his customers and collects money on a monthly basis.

Boota is confident that he can increase his herd through breeding. His current buffaloes produce milk and he does not have any other buffalo to use for breeding. He has increased his herd through breeding in the past, as he has now acquired sufficient experience in the breeding system. However, due to lack of funds, it seems impossible to buy an additional buffalo because a healthy buffalo is expensive. Therefore, Boota has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan so that he can buy an additional buffalo for breeding. He wants to continue his breeding system in the future, because he can easily increase his herd and generate more income through milk production.

Boota thanks Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
