Kalsoom's story

Kalsoom is a 28-year-old married woman, living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of three children and equally responsible for all of them. She belongs to an ultra poor family, that is why she cannot afford the educational expenses of all her children.

One of her sons goes with his father to help him in his business. Her husband owns a blacksmith shop in which he provides welding services. He also provides door to door services to his customers. Due to the increase in the price of iron, he is unable to buy sufficient welding materials such as welding rods, soldering rods, etc. to carry on his business.

To fulfill the demand of his customers and to run his enterprise he needs some capital to buy welding material. Kalsoom requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan for her husband so that he would be able to buy material to carry on his business.

Kalsoom is very glad and thankful to Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
