Kalsoom
Kalsoom, age 53, is a married woman. Her husband is a driver by profession and provides transportation services using his three-wheeled rickshaw. He has been driving a rickshaw for many years to meet the family expenses, but now it requires proper maintenance to keep it in its functional routine. For this reason, Kalsoom has applied for a loan of PKR 50,000, for her husband. He wants to buy new tires and some auto spare parts for his vehicle. This will help him drive more smoothly and provide better transport service to his passengers. Kalsoom is hopeful that this loan will be a productive one for her husband and will bring positive changes to his business.
