A loan of $850 helped a member to pay for repair of a spices grinding machine.


Kalsoom's Group's story

Kalsoom is the mother of 5 children. Her eldest son has a business selling spices while the others are getting their education. She supports her family financially by sewing clothes for her neighboring clients. She is very skillful and receives regular orders every month. Her husband is a mason and constructs houses and other buildings on order. Kalsoom has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for her son who will use the loan to pay for the repair of his grinding machine which he will grind his spices with and sell to his clients for a profit. He is now an experienced person in his business and has been operating it for many years. Kalsoom is hopeful that a loan investment will help her son save his business asset by repairing it and increase his income.
