Salma's Group's story

Salma belongs to a small city called Arifwala in Pakistan. Arifwala is known for its agriculture industry. She has been living there in a 2-room brick house for the past 10 years. She is married to A. G. and has three children. All of them are very young and studying in a local school. Salma is a housewife, staying at home and doing her household responsibilities.

Her husband has an animal-selling business. His business grows busier during the Muslim festival of Eid-ul-Azha because people purchase animals to slaughter. At other times he sells animals to butchers. Salma has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband who will buy some goats & sheep to further improve his animal-sales business. He has been operating this business for the past 10 years and Salma is confident that her husband will be able to improve the financial condition of his business.

She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 3rd loan application. In previous loan years, she has maintained a good credit record and never missed any meeting.

Note: In the photo, the lady with a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Salma.
