She is a very active lady. She always keeps a smile on her face. She is fond of cooking. She prepares delicious foods for her family and takes care of their health. She has two daughters, both in kindergarten. She wants to raise them with a good education. Her husband's name is M. S. and he runs a PCO (public call office, where people make a call and pays charges of single minute). His PCO is located in the main market. He has been running this business for the past 10 years.

Ayesha has been a client of Asasah (microfinance institute in Pakistan and a partner of Kiva) for the last three years. With the loan profits, she has been able to purchase a color television and a fridge. Now they are applying for a loan again to purchase telephone calling cards in bulk for her husband’s PCO.
They hope to get a good profit this time too. They would like to purchase a motorbike for her husband and take the family on rides on weekends.
