Shameem is a beautician by profession. Since 2009, she has been operating her own beauty salon. Currently, the salon is almost out of beauty supplies; therefore, Shameem wants to purchase new cosmetic products to continue her business.
As a member of a six-person lending group, Shameem has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase beauty products like facial creams, lipsticks, scrubs, makeup kits, hair colors, and other products. She would also like to buy some new chairs for her salon. With the profit, she would repay the loan and save to build a home with her husband. Shameem is very hopeful that the loan will be productive for them, and she is thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan for their support.
