Rasoolan Ghulam Ali's Group's story

Rasoolan lives in Gujranwala, which is located in Punjab and famous for its sweetmeats in Pakistan. She has been living there in a three-room brick house with her family for over 26 years. She is a talented lady and operates a sewing business at her home to supplement the income of her family. She collects orders from her neighborhood clients and completes the orders on time to earn an income. She is married to G. A., who is a private entrepreneur and operates a cigarette selling business. He operates his shop from the center of the market and handles a good clientele base. He keeps every brand of cigarette in his shop to fulfill the needs of his customers on time.

Rasoolan has two sons. Both of them have been involved in the business of selling glass for over seven years. They sell glass to different glass companies on orders and contribute to their family financially from their earnings. Rasoolan has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, for her husband’s business. He will invest the loan in purchasing more cigarettes brands for his cigarette shop. Rasoolan is hopeful that through this loan investment her husband’s income will increase and his clientele base will improve as well.

She is a regular loan user of Asasah. This is her second loan application. In the previous loan year, she built good credit behavior and never missed any meeting.
