Her children go to school in the morning and tuition in the evening. It is a challenge for them to afford the school and tuition fee, so both are doing a lot of hard work to run the set-up of their house. They always try to establish their businesses so that they can get maximum income.
Arshad requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan; she will partially use this amount for her parlor and partially for the barbershop. She will buy cosmetic products such as facial cream, hair colors, and scissors, and her husband will buy instruments such as scissors, comb, shaving cream, and blades for his barbershop.
She hopes that through this amount, both would be able to enhance their business. She is very thankful to Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
