A loan of $1,750 helped a member to buy new auto rickshaw to drive.


Kalssom's Group's story

Kalssom belongs to an ultra-poor family and has been feeding her seven children. There are only some earning persons who are contributing toward payment of household expenses; her three sons do nothing.

Kalssom has been saving for many years to buy new auto rickshaw for her son, but most of the savings were spent on an operation on her eyes.
Now she wants to buy a new auto rickshaw for one of these idle sons, but she does not have enough money left to buy one.

Therefore, Kalssom requested a loan so that she could buy a new rickshaw with the contribution of her remaining savings. She hopes that her son will drive the auto rickshaw with his full devotion and earn sufficient income.

Kalssom is a 45-year-old woman, living with her seven children and spouse in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

Kalssom is very happy after taking this loan and says thank you to Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan.

Note: Kalssom is representing herself by raising her hand.
