Ghulam Fatima's Group's story

Ghulam Fatima is 53 years old and married with four sons. Her eldest son works in a factory while the others stay at home. Ghulam Fatima couldn’t provide them an education due to financial constraints. Her husband is a blacksmith and makes iron rods. He sells to different factories and dealers on order. He has been operating this business for the past 20 years. Ghulam Fatima does sewing and embroidery work for her neighboring clients to supplement the income of her family. Besides her work, she actively manages her household activities as well.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to improve her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy iron and make iron rods to fulfill larger orders on time and increase his profits. Ghulam Fatima hopes that an investment will take her husband’s business to a more profitable position and her family will be able to enjoy more financial benefits. She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her third loan application. With previous loans, she maintained good credit behavior and never missed any meeting.

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