A loan of $1,250 helped a member to buy cosmetic products for her beauty salon, including lipstick and facial creams.

Shamshad's Group's story

Shamshad is a 42-year-old woman. She lives in Pakistan with her husband, her son and her daughter. Her husband is a driver, whose income is too low to cover their household expenses. Shamshad herself has been running a beauty salon for two years. As a member of a borrowing group, she has requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase cosmetic products for her salon, including lipstick and facial creams. With the profits, she will first pay back her loan to Kiva, and then she will purchase a variety of cosmetic products for the salon. Shamshad’s dream is to open a new beauty parlor and to get good profits from it. She wants to thank the BRAC staff for being so cooperative.
