Saima's Group's story

Saima is a 32-year-old very hard working and talented woman. She is a mother of 2 sons and 2 daughters. Her husband is a taxi driver. One daughter is studying in 9th class while the other one is in the 7th class. Both of her sons are less than 5 years old.

Saima has been running a beauty parlor for the past two years. She has gotten a lot of appreciation through her work. She is very talented and knows the art of makeup very well. People prefer her services for bridal makeup. She makes enough to support her family well.

Due to an increase in the number of customers, she requires more beauty products such as makeup kits, hair dryers, facial products etc. For this, she has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to meet the requirements of her parlor, which ultimately helps her in generating more income.

Saima desires to expand her parlor and intends to spend part of her income on the improvement of her house.
