A loan of $525 helped a member to purchase equipment for her salon.


Farzana Group's story

Farzana is 36 years old, a hard-working and independent woman. She is living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Her husband has gone abroad for the purpose of his job as an argon welder and his income is not enough to meet the household expenses.

For 15 years, Farzana has been running a beauty salon, and she wants to purchase some more cosmetic products and chairs for her beauty salon. For that reason, Farzana is a member of an three-person lending group that has requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan.

On getting a profit, first of all she will repay the loan amount to Kiva and than she wants to build a new room in the salon, as the space in the salon is very congested. She hopes that her business will grow even more and she is very much thankful to both BRAC and Kiva.

In this group: Farzana, Shazia, Riffat
