Shehrish Group's story

Shehrish is 23--young, energetic and a hard-working woman. She is living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan along with her husband and one son. Her husband is an auto mechanic by profession and his monthly income is not enough to meet the household expenses.

Shehrish wants to educate her son in a good school so that he can have a bright future. Currently she can’t send him to a good school due to their financial constraints, because of which she is much worried about his future.

She has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan. She is a very skilled woman and she wants to open a beauty parlor in her house to generate an alternative source of income for her family. She would purchase cosmetic products like lipsticks, creams, facial scrubs, make-up kits, etc. and would also purchase some chairs for her salon. She is very hopeful for this loan as she could start her business from this loan. She would spend the profit amount on the education of her child and to pay back her installments.
