Asma's Group's story

Asma is a 28-year-old housewife. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She has no children. Her husband owns a cosmetic shop in the market, which is the only source of income for the family. He sells a variety of cosmetics in his shop. Presently, he is interested in offering more variety to his customers, which will help him to increase his net income and savings as well. However, due to the lack of finances, he finds it difficult.

Therefore, his wife, Asma, has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan so that she can help her husband. With the help of the loan amount, he will purchase makeup kits, facial creams, lotions and lipsticks. With the profit amount, her husband wants to grow his business in the future. Asma is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
