Mehwish's Group's story

Mehwish is a 22-year-old woman who lives in Pakistan with her husband. Her husband is a tailor whose income is too low to cover their household expenses. Since 2011 Mehwish herself has been running a beauty salon.

As a member of 7-person lending group, she has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase cosmetic products like lipstick, facial creams, etc., for the salon. With the profits she wants to renovate her house and repay the loan amount.

She wants to thank all the BRAC staff for being so co-operative.
