Farida lives in district 15 of Kabul, Afghanistan. She is educated, single, and she has a beauty salon. She is very talented for her line of work and is very popular in the area. However, she needs to change the designs of her beauty salon. Therefore, she has requested an individual loan to start working on her shop and complete her inventory. This will allow her to further her business, gain more success and help her family. She is happy because of this process, especially for women in Afghanistan.
