A loan of $1,350 helped a member to buy a rickshaw.


Kalsoom's Group's story

Kalsoom is 57 years of age and is a married woman. Her husband is a watchman by profession. His income is not enough to afford the living expenses of the whole family and so Kalsoom can't provide education to her children. Her eldest son is a rickshaw driver, while the other tow work in a factory.
Kalsoom has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, for her son, who wants to buy a rickshaw. He is currently driving a rented rickshaw. He is not able to make good income this way.

By purchasing a rickshaw, he will be able to work for longer hours without any time limitations and he can increase his profits.
He has 3 years of experience in his work, and Kalsoom is confident about the improvement of her son’s business after the loan investment.

In this group: Kalsoom , Mumtaz Mai, Salma Bibi, Nusrat, Allah Rakhi, Shamim Akhtar
