Kishwar tahira is a resident of the small city of Kasur in Pakistan. Kasur is famous for its tannery industry. She owns a two-room house there and lives in it with her family.

Her husband's name is S. A., and he is involved in a clothing business. He sells clothes through a shop located in the market. He sells specifically ladies' clothes there and manages a good clientele base. Kishwar helps him by selling clothes to ladies in her community. Their good collection of clothes has made them renowned among their customers. Kishwar is an active lady, and carries out her responsibilities as a housewife well and takes care of her family. She has applied for a loan from the Kiva partner, Asasah, for her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy clothing of different varieties in bulk quantities. The bulk purchasing will enable him to offer more variety to his customers and will increase his sales. Kishwar is confident that through the loan investment her husband’s business will become more profitable.
