Kalsoom's Group's story

Kalsoom got married a few years ago with G. M. and she has a son and a daughter, who both stay at home and have not started their education yet. She lives in a 2-room brick house in a small city called Mian Channu. Mian Channu is a small city of Pakistan also known for its agriculture industry. She is a housewife and stays at home doing her household work. She is a very active and supportive person and always ready to help her family in their time of need. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, for her nephew who also lives with her and operates an animal-selling business. He buys young animals, raises them and sells to butchers at a profit. Using the loan, he will buy goats & sheep for resale. Kalsoom is hopeful that an investment will bring positive changes to her nephew’s business and it will help him to grow financially. She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 2nd loan application. In previous loan year, she has proved herself as a responsible client by paying her installments on time and by attending every meeting.
