Sajida is 35 years old and a hardworking and independent woman. She is living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, with her husband and a son, who is studying in third class. Her husband is a security guard and his income is not enough to meet the household expenses. For 8 years, Sajida has been running a beauty salon, and she wants to purchase some more cosmetic products like makeup kits, facial scrubs, nail polish etc and some fancy chairs for her beauty salon. For that reason, Sajida has requested for a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan. On getting the profit, first of all she would repay the loan amount and then she wants to build a new room in the salon, as the space in the salon is too congested. She hopes that her business grows more and she is very much thankful to both BRAC and Kiva.
