A loan of $1,650 helped a member to purchase cosmetics for her beauty salon.

Kosar's Group's story

Kosar is a 50-year-old housewife. She lives with her husband, five daughters, and two sons in Punjab, Pakistan. Her husband and one son are laborers, while she has been running her own beauty salon since 2010. One daughter helps her in the business as well.

Kosar is a member of a seven-person lending group, and she has requested a loan from KIVA partner BRAC Pakistan. With the loan money, she wants to purchase some cosmetics like lipstick and beauty creams for the salon. As Eid-ul-Azah is near, she wants to increase her income by purchasing new cosmetics so that she can provide better services to more clients on this special occasion.

Kosar and her husband are very hopeful that the loan will be a lucky and productive one for their family. She is taking a third loan from BRAC, and she is very thankful to BRAC for helping her.
