Farzana Group's story

Farzana is a 44-year-old, hard-working and diligent woman. She has three children and her husband works in a wood shop.

Farzana has completed various beautician courses and she is an excellent beautician by profession. She has been running her own beauty salon for 20 years. She is very skilled and an independent woman and she is helping her husband by running her own business. She spends all of her income generated from the business on the education of children so that they can have a bright future.

Currently she has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan, as a member of a two-person lending group. She would like to expand her business by adding one more room to her salon. Her clients are increasing day by day and current space is too congested. She would also like to purchase more cosmetic products, such as lipsticks, facial scrubs, etc and also some new hair stylers. This loan could help her to fulfill her dreams. NOTE: In the picture, Farzana is raising her hand.
