Sakina's story

Ms. Sakina is a 38-year-old, vigorous, married woman. She has had a beauty parlor business for the past three years. She is passionate about her work, and client demand is strong. But business challenges, combined with family expenditures, frustrate her nearly every day. Her husband is doing business selling waste yarn, but he lacks for work due to a recession here in Pakistan, and he cannot earn enough to support his family well. Sakina's beauty parlor is small but fulfills the needs of the local community, and she is the highest earner in her household. She is a mother of two children. She wants to grow her business. She requested a loan of Rs 20000 to buy more products for skin care, hair treatment, and make-up kits to cater to more customers at a time. She shared that her dream is to run a training school in her community. She is teaching make-up and hair styling skills to two students at this time, so they can help her expand her business, as well as earn money for themselves.
