Ghazala's Group's story

Ghazala is a 25-year-old, hardworking and independent woman. She is living in Punjab, Pakistan, with her husband and daughter, who is a student. Her husband has a small stationery shop and his income is not enough to meet the household expenses. For the last 3 months Ghazala has been running a beauty salon, and she wants to purchase more cosmetic products like makeup kits, facial creams, hair styling products etc. for her beauty salon.
For that reason, Ghazala as a member of seven-person lending group has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. First of all she will repay the loan amount to Kiva and then she wants to build a new room in the salon, as the space in the salon is too congested. She hopes that her business grows more and she is very much thankful to both Brac and Kiva. Note: In the picture, Ghazala is carrying a passbook in her hand.

In this group: Ghazala, Samina, Shameem, Zubaida, Ruksana , Meena, Rehana
