Talat is 40 years old, married to F. M. and lives in a small city in Pakistan called Chichawatni. She resides in a three-room brick house with her husband and four children: two boys and two girls. Three of them are enrolled in a local school while youngest one has not started attending school yet. Talat is a working woman as well as a housewife. She manages her household responsibilities and takes care of her children. She also sells embroidered clothes to her neighborhood clients. She purchases them from a city called Multan. The earned profits help her pay school fees for her children and utilities expenses.

Her husband is a fruit vendor who operates a shop in the market. He believes in quality and provides fresh seasonal fruits for his clients to purchase.Talat has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband, who will invest that money in his business. Through the loan, he will purchase fresh seasonal fruits that will help him attract more customers and make more profit. Talat is hopeful that her husband’s business will be expanded by making positive use of the loan. He has been doing this business for the past 15 years and Talat has full confidence in him.
