Sumera's Group's story

Sumera, age 33, is a married and a dedicated mother of three children. Her husband runs a cosmetics shop in which he offers his customers variety of cosmetics products such as lipstick, nail polish, scrub, hair dye, fairness cream, hair brushes, etc. Her husband wants to grow his business to meet the rapid increase in the household expenses of his family.

In order to purchase more cosmetics, Sumera contacted Kiva's field partner BRAC Pakistan, and applied for a loan of 30,000 PKR. In this way her husband will be able to buy more cosmetics to sell. This ultimately saves him time and hopefully will increase his net income. She expects a boost in their earnings and wishes to utilize the part of revenue for the betterment of her family members. She is very thankful to Kiva's field partner BRAC Pakistan.
