Tasleem's Group's story

Tasleem is 43 years old, and a very hard-working and independent woman. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, with her family. Her family includes two sons and two daughters. Her husband is a businessman. He has been running his own dairy shop and sports shop. Their eldest son is a taxi driver.

Tasleem is a clothing seller. She runs a small clothing sales business in her house. She purchases clothes from different areas of Peshawar and Lahore, and she resells them in Rawalpindi. By doing this she gets a good amount of profit, which helps her to meet the household expenses. Presently, she needs some additional capital to grow her business. Therefore, as a member of this five-person borrowing group, she has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan. With the loan amount, she will purchase a variety of clothes from different areas, to resell in her own community. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
