A loan of $650 helped a member to buy hair-related products and scissors for a barber shop.

Safooran's Group's story

Safooran lives in Khanewal, which is a small city of Punjab, Pakistan, known for its agricultural industry. She is 48 years old and has three sons and two daughters. She couldn’t provide an education to her children due to the poor financial conditions of her family.

Her eldest son has a barber shop and the next to him is a welder by profession and welds different machines on order. Her husband, F. S., is a laborer by profession. He is a very hard worker and his work involves a lot of physical energy. He is still very active at the age of 55.

Safooran has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her son’s barber shop. With the loan, her son will buy scissors and hair-related products such as creams, gels and colors to provide better services to the clients. He has been doing this business for the past four years and Safooran is hopeful that this investment will prove successful for his business.

She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her third loan application. In previous years, she has proved herself as a very responsible client who paid her installments on time and never missed any meetings.
