Asia
Asia is a 32-year-old hardworking, diligent woman. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with her husband, a daughter, and a son.

Her husband is a government employee, but his income is insufficient to meet the household expenses. Both of her children are studying in government schools.

Asia is an efficient beautician by profession. Since 2010, she has been operating her own beauty salon. Currently, the beauty stock of the salon is almost gone, so Asia wants to purchase cosmetic products to continue her business. She has requested for 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 buy some new chairs for her salon.

She will pay the installments on the loan, and school fees for her children with the profits. She dreams of living a happy, healthy, and peaceful life with her family. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan for their support.
