Kalsoom is at the age of 47, she belongs to the middle standard family, and she is passing her life with her spouse and four children. Her residence is in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

Her husband earns a sufficient amount, and easily affords the household expenses and school fee for his children. He owns a shop in which he offers services to fix the glasses in windows panes and windows wooden frames. He has to convince his customers for good quality and color glass; his convincing way is very impressive. For his services, sometimes he has to go out of city also.

Nowadays, his customers demand designed-over glass, which he does not have in the stock. He wants to buy such designed-over glass but does not have sufficient amount to purchase. Therefore, Kalsoom requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, so that her husband can buy designed wise glasses to offer his customers.

She is very hopeful the Kiva lenders would support her in this fund raising. Kalsoom is very thankful to Kiva and it's field partner, BARC Pakistan.
