Ghulam Fatima's Group's story

Ghulam Fatima lives in Pakpattan which is a small city in Punjab province, Pakistan, known for its agriculture industry. She owns a 2-room house there and lives in it with her family in the area of Shakar Gunj.

Ghulam is a very supportive lady who sells bed-sheets to share the financial burden with her husband. She also does her household responsibilities very well and takes care of her children. She has given birth to four daughters. Two of them are studying while others are not of school-going age yet.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to improve her husband’s business selling fruits. He started this business 13 years ago. He operates his business in a busy market in the city and offers different seasonal fruit varieties to his customers. He has a good name in the market for his good customer dealings and reasonable rates. Using the loan, he will put more variety of fresh seasonal fruit in his shop for resale.

Ghulam is hopeful that the loan investment will take her husband’s business to a more profitable position which will help her family to live a better life financially.
