Ghulam Fatima's Group's story

G. Fatima lives in Jaranwala, a small city in the Punjab region of Pakistan known for its agriculture industry. She has been living there with her family in a two-room brick house for more than 20 years. G. Fatima is a housewife; she stays at home and does her household work. In her spare time, she also supports her husband by taking care of his buffaloes. G. Fatima has 3 daughters and 5 sons. Her 2 eldest sons work in a factory for a small salary. Three of the remaining children are in school while the others stay at home.

G. Fatima has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, for her husband, who operates a dairy business in the community. He will use the loan to buy another buffalo to produce more milk and to sell to many more customers. He started this business 5 years ago and is now getting good at it. G. Fatima is hopeful that by purchasing another buffalo, her husband’s business will expand and he will be able to increase his clients and profit. G. Fatima is a regular lender with Asasah and this is her 2nd loan application. In previous loan years, she established good credit behavior and never missed a meeting.
