Samina is a 21-year-old unmarried woman. She has had a beauty parlor for five years. She offers many facilities to her customers such as make-up, hair styling and facials. Through providing excellent services, she has become famous in her street. In order to meet with the increasing demands of her customers, she is interested in buying more varieties of cosmetics products for the beauty parlor.

Because of having low cash in hand, she contacted Kashf Foundation to apply for her second loan. She needs a loan of Rs 35,000 to buy packs of cleansers, make-up kits and hair care products. She is hopeful to cater to more customers time after time which will ultimately help in generating more income for her.
