Kalsoom’s husband owns a cosmetics shop, which is the family’s only source of income. Because his monthly income is inadequate to meet the family’s needs, they live in miserable conditions.
The shop is in need of a variety of products including hairbrushes and dyes, lipsticks, nail polish, etc. to sell. However, due to the family’s lack of money it’s difficult to make these purchases. Therefore, as a member of a two-person group Kalsoom is applying for a 65,000 PKR loan through Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to buy needed stock for her husband's shop.
Kalsoom is very grateful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
