A loan of $2,375 helped a member to purchase cosmetic products and chairs for her beauty salon.


Fozia's Group's story

Fozia is a 29-year-old, hard working and independent woman. She is living in Punjab, Pakistan, with her husband and son, who is studying in third class. Fozia's husband is an auto mechanic. His income is not enough to meet the household expenses. Since 2003, Fozia has been running a beauty salon and she wants to purchase some more cosmetic products and chairs for her beauty salon. For that reason, as a member of a nine-person lending group, she has requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan. With her profits, she will first repay the loan amount to Kiva and then she wants to build a new room in the salon, as the current space in the salon is too congested. She hopes for her daughter's bright future. Note: In the picture, Fozia is carrying a passbook in her hand.

In this group: Fozia, Saira, Gulshan, Shehnaz, Nuzhat, Naila, Naseem, Shagufta, Rukhsana
