A loan of $1,725 helped a member expand used items business.


Kalsoom's Group's story

I am a mother of four: one boy and three girls. All of my kids attend school except two girls who are not of school going age yet. My husband trades used items. He collects these items from various factories and farms and then supplies them to a used items warehouse. He started this business three years ago by acquiring a loan from Asasah, a microfinance institution in Pakistan. My financial condition over this period have grown much better. I am a group leader of following women: Shahnaz R. is borrowing to buy a cow. Sakina B.’s husband wants to start a tea stall. Zareena A. will invest her share of loan to start a restaurant. Rasheeda B. is also borrowing for her tea stall. Rasheeda S.’s husband sells bricks.

In this group: Kalsoom, Shahnaz, Sakina, Zareena, Rasheeda, Rasheeda
