Mumtaz lives in Arifwala, a small city of Punjab, Pakistan, known for its agriculture industry. She lives there in the area called Muhallah Eid Gah which is a small residential area of the city. She came here after her marriage. She supports her family with her profession, working as a midwife. She also sews clothes in her spare time and earns money from her neighboring clients. Her husband’s name is M. K. and he operates a dairy business at his home. For this purpose, he keeps buffalo and gets milk to sell to his nearby customers. Her brother also lives with her. He is a driver by trade and drives a rickshaw. Mumtaz has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the betterment of her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy another buffalo that will help him increase the milk productivity and his sales as well. Mumtaz is hopeful that an investment will be very productive for her husband’s business and her family will be able to have a better standard of living. She is the mother of 2 daughters who have not started to attend to school yet. She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 2nd loan application.
