Akbar Ali's story

Akbar Ali is a 47-year-old man. He is a milkman by profession, and sells milk in his community. He has been selling milk for 20 years, and now he is an expert and experienced in his profession. He is very expert in getting milk from a buffalo; he gets milk from all his buffaloes in no time. He has many buffaloes; this is the reason he has to do very hard work to feed them.

He is taking a second loan, and he has been investing his previous loan in the same business. With the help of the last loan, he purchased a buffalo and has been getting benefits from that buffalo. He still wants to establish his business and wants to buy another buffalo so that he could increase his monthly income and savings as well. He manages his household necessities from his earnings from milk sales. He speaks with a monotonous tone that is impressive, and he easily wins the trust of his clients. He was in need of one buffalo to increase his income.

Therefore, Akbar Ali requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan. He hopes that he will be able to buy a buffalo, and he will be succeeding to increase his monthly income and his herd as well. He thanks Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
