A loan of $1,100 helped a member to purchase a variety of cosmetic products for her salon.


Saima's Group's story

Saima is 28 years old and a hardworking and independent woman. She lives in Punjab, Pakistan, with her husband, son and two daughters. Her husband is a taxi driver but his income is not enough to meet the household expenses. Since 2008, Saima has been running a beauty salon in her house. Currently she wants to purchase a variety of cosmetic products like makeup kits, eye shadows, hair products, etc. for her beauty salon.

For that reason, Saima, as a member of a six-person lending group, has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. On getting a profit, first of all she will repay the loan amount to Kiva, and then she wants to build a new room onto the salon, as the space in the salon is much too congested. She hopes that her business grows more, and she is very thankful to both Brac and Kiva.

In this group: Saima, Rasheeda, Shehnaz, Adeeba, Bushra, Sajida
