Salamti's Group's story

Salamti belongs to Khanewal which is a small city in Punjab, Pakistan, known for its agriculture industry. She has been living there with her family in a 2-room brick house in the area of Shanti Nagar for the past 10 years. She is a housewife and spends most of her time at home doing her household work. She is a mother of one daughter who is 6 years old and has yet not started getting an education due to financial constraints.

She is married to S. who is a farmer by trade and involved in agriculture. He grows different seasonal crops and sells them to his clients after harvesting, for a profit.

Salamti has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy fertilizers, seeds and pesticides, etc. to grow crops and earn better profits.

He has been operating this business for the past eight years and Salamti is hopeful that an investment will help him getting maximum profits from his hard work.
