Salma's Group's story

Salma is the wife of A. L. and lives in the mid-sized city of Vehari in Pakistan. She owns a two-roomed brick house in which she has lived with her family for the past 22 years. She has nine children – four daughters and five sons. Her first three sons work in different barber shops for a monthly wage. The others are enrolled in a local school. Her husband owns and operates a tea stall in the food market where he also serves his customers with food items (biscuits and chips). He has been in this business for over five years.

Salma is a very skillful lady. She operates an embroidery business. She collects order from clothes shops and earns a profit after completing each embroidered dress. She uses her income to pay for utilities, but she also saves part of her income for her elder son's marriage, which will be held in December this year.

Salma has successfully repaid her first loan to Kiva partner, Asasah (a microfinance institution of Pakistan). Now she is requesting another loan for her husband to purchase items for his business such as milk, sugar, tea cups etc. in order to generate a good profit.
