A loan of $525 helped to buy bull calves and heifers for her husband's cattle farm.


Rubina's story

Rubina is a 32-year-old married woman who lives with her family near Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of five children, three of whom go to school. One of her sons helps his father with raising cattle. Her husband is a cattle trader and does most of his trading within his home area. He breeds cattle in his yard and sells them at a local market. He has to feed each calf for one or two years until it is grown up and healthy, which is a very lengthy and expensive process. He wants to buy a heifer to continue breeding cattle, but he already invested his all savings to build a cowshed. Therefore, Rubina has applied for a loan from Kiva’s field partner Brac Pakistan, so her husband can buy bull calves and heifers for his cattle farming. Fetal diseases are the major challenge for him. He hopes that he will pay all the installments on time. With the profits he will buy fodder for his cattle and cures for diseases. Rubina is very pleased after receiving this loan and thankful to Kiva and Brac Pakistan.
