Kaneez Group's story

Kaneez is a 33-year-old hardworking and diligent woman. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, along with her husband and son. Her husband is a government employee but his salary is very low. Her son is currently studying and it’s very difficult for them to pay for his educational expenses.

Kaneez is a beautician by profession. Since 2005, she has operated her own beauty salon. Currently the beauty stock of the salon is almost depleted. Therefore, Kaneez would like to purchase a variety of new cosmetic products to continue her business.

As a member of a four-person borrowing group, Kaneez has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase beauty products such as facial creams, lipsticks, scrubs, makeup kits, hair colors and other products. She would also like to buy some new chairs for her salon.

With the profits she earns, she plans to extend her business by opening an additional beauty salon. She dreams of living a happy, healthy and peaceful life with her family. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan for their support.
