A loan of $2,150 helped a member to purchase cosmetics for her beauty salon.


Safeena's Group's story

Safeena is 36 years old, a hard-working and independent woman. She is living in Punjab, Pakistan, with her husband and two sons. Her husband has been running a general store and his income is not enough to meet the household expenses. Since 2007 Safeena has been running a beauty salon, and she wants to purchase some more cosmetic products and chairs for the business.

For that reason as a member of a nine-person lending group she has requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase cosmetics like facial creams, lipsticks, hair colors and other varieties of products for her salon. If she gets good profit she is going to open a tailoring school, pay house expenses, repay the loan amount and will put aside some savings for her family as well.

Safeena hopes that her business will grow more and she is very much thankful to both BRAC and Kiva. Note: In the picture, Safeena is holding a passbook in her hand.

In this group: Safeena, Sajida, Noureen, Haneefa, Rehana, Robina, Ghazala, Shagufta, Fouzia
