A loan of $575 helped a member to purchase cosmetic products for her beauty parlour.

Saima Group's story

Saima is 32 years old and a hardworking and diligent woman. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan along with her husband, two daughters, 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.

Saima is an efficient beautician by profession. Since 2006, she has been operating her own beauty salon. Currently, the beauty stock of the salon is almost finished. Therefore, Saima wants to purchase cosmetic products to continue her business. For that, as a member of a 2-person lending group, she has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan, to purchase beauty products like facial creams, lipsticks, scrubs, makeup kits, hair colours, and some other variety of products. She would also buy some new chairs for her salon. With the profits, she will pay the installments of the loan and school fees for her children.

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.
