A loan of $325 helped to buy fresh and seasonal fruits to sell..


Kalsoom's story

Kalsoom is the mother of six children. She is living with her spouse and children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

Her husband is a fruit seller and has sold fresh fruits from a shop in the nearby town for many years. He offers seasonal and fresh fruits to his customers. He has been feeding his family through income generated from the fruit shop.

Nowadays, the needs of his family have suddenly increased and he does not have other sources to cope with these needs, so he decided to expand his current enterprise. He wants to increase the stock on a daily basis so that he could generate maximum income out of the fruits sales.

Therefore, Kalsoom requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan, so that her husband can buy extra seasonal fruits.
