A loan of $900 helped a member to buy cosmetics for selling.

Bano's Group's story

Bano lives in Faisalabad, Pakistan, which is famous for its textiles industry. She owns a two-room house there and has been living in it with her family for the past two years.

She is a 27-year-old business lady, selling cosmetics from her home. Her clients are mostly from her community. They give her orders for cosmetics, which enables her to earn well for her family.

Besides her business, she also manages her household responsibilities very well and gives the required time to her family. She is married to M., who is a janitor with a meager income. Bano lives in a combined family with her brother-in-law, who has a construction supplies business.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the expansion of her cosmetics business. With the loan, she will buy cosmetics in a larger quantity, which will help her to fulfill orders on time and to increase her sales.

She is a new loan user of Asasah and hopes that she will be able to achieve a better financial position in her business after the loan investment.
