Khalida's Group's story

Khalida lives in Jaranwala, a small city in Punjab, Pakistan. The area is known for its agriculture industry. Khalida lives there in a 2 roomed brick house with her family. She moved here after her marriage. Khalida has given birth to 2 sons. Her elder son operates a cosmetics sales business. He has a cosmetic shop in the market. He sells makeup accessories such as mascara, eye liners, lipsticks and beauty-related products (such as face creams and masks) to his customers. Her younger son works in a factory for a small income. Her husband is also a worker in a factory with a low income. Khalida herself is a housewife. She stays at home and does her household responsibilities. Khalida has applied for a loan for the 2nd time from Kiva partner Asasah for her elder son’s business. With the loan, he will buy more cosmetics and beauty products for his shop to increase the profit from his sales. Khalida is hopeful that an investment will bring good profits to her son and improve his business condition. Note: In the photo, the lady with a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Khalida.
