Kalsoom's Group's story

Kalsoom is an educated lady. She has completed her education to 12th standard and now performs her duty as a teacher in a school. She chose this work as a profession, because she loves teaching and her profession now helps her to financially support her family. She is the resident of Jaranwala, which is a small city of Punjab and famous for its agriculture industry in Pakistan. She lives in a 2 room brick house with her family. She moved here after her marriage. She is 33 years old and has no children yet. Her husband is a vegetable seller by profession and works in a vegetable market. Her father-in-law is also a working person in the family and is involved in a fruit selling business.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah for her husband’s business. With the loan, her husband will buy fresh seasonal vegetables and increase his sales. She is hopeful that her husband’s business will develop by investing money in it.

She is a regular user of Asasah and this is her 2nd loan application. In her previous loan year, she established good credit behavior and never missed any meetings.
