Kalsoom's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy a new rickshaw for her husband with the contribution of old savings.

Kalsoom's story

Kalsoom is a 33-year-old woman, living with her five children and her spouse in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. Her husband has been driving an auto rickshaw and pays a daily rent because this rickshaw does not belong to him. He belongs to an ultra poor family and has been feeding his children. Now his children are growing older and their needs have increased. He has been worried for many days about how to avoid paying the daily rent and has decided to buy his own rickshaw.

Kalsoom has been saving for many days to buy a new auto rickshaw for her husband, but at the time of purchasing, she did not have enough money. Therefore, she has requested a loan so that her husband can buy a new rickshaw with the contribution of savings.

She hopes that now her husband will be able to generate more income, because now he will not pay daily rent to anyone. She is very happy after receiving this loan. She thanks Kiva and field partner BRAC Pakistan.
