Rukhsana is aged 38 and the responsible mother of two children. She is living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. Her husband is doing jobs in a small firm. He has some cattle at home and produces milk which Rukhsana sells locally. He has been keeping his herd at home, and through breeding he has been increasing his cattle for many years. Rukhsana wants to increase milk production and wants to buy an additional cow so that she can grow the herd. However, due to lack of capital she is unable to buy a cow.

Therefore, Rukhsana has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan so that she can buy an additional cow. She hopes that now she can easily carry on her business towards progress. She thanks Kiva and the field partner BRAC Pakistan.
