Kalsoom has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for her husband’s fruit selling business. He is a very hard worker and always provides high quality fresh fruit to his customers at low prices. With the loan investment, he will buy fresh seasonal fruit to sell to his customers and that will increase his sales and profit. He has been operating his business for many years and has vast experience in his field of work.

She is very supportive and does decorative embroidery in order to financially support her family. She has given birth to seven children. Her two sons are involved in chicken meat selling business while 2 daughters help her in her embroidery work. Her remaining children are continuing their education.
