A loan of $1,375 helped a member to purchase products for beauty salon.


Asia Group's story

Asia is a 32-year-old hardworking and diligent woman. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, along her husband, one daughter and a son. Her husband is a government employee but his income is insufficient to meet the household expenses. Both of her children are studying in government schools. Asia is an efficient beautician by profession. Since 2010 she has been operating her own beauty salon. Currently, the beauty stock of the salon is almost finished, and therefore Asia wants to purchase cosmetic products to continue her business. As a member of a six-person lending group, she has requested for a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase beauty products like facial creams, lipsticks, scrubs, makeup kits, hair colors and some other variety of products. She would also buy some new chairs for her salon. With the profit, she will pay the installments of the loan and school fees for her children. She dreams to live a happy healthy and peaceful life with her family. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan for their support. Note: In the picture Asia is raising her hand.
