Yasmeen's Group's story

Yasmeen is 30 years old, a hard working and independent woman. She is living in Punjab, Pakistan, with her husband, son and two daughters. Her husband is an engineer. Yasmeen works as a beautician in a beauty parlor. She has done different types of beautician courses and now she wants to open a new beauty salon of her own. For that reason, as a member of a six-person lending group, she has requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan. On getting a profit from her business, she will be able to generate some income for her family. Her husband is very glad to know that his wife is planning to start her own business. He assures her that he will be helping her in the business. She hopes that her business will be successful and she is very much thankful to both Brac and Kiva.
