A loan of $1,500 helped a member to buy export quality cosmetics for resale.


Shehnaz's Group's story

Shehnaz is a 53-year-old married woman, living with her family in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. Her son has been running a cosmetics store for 10 years and generates income for his family. He sells beauty products such as shampoo, lotions, creams, artificial jewelry, nail polish and ladies' undergarments.

Nowadays, demand for export quality products has increased, but due to the unavailability of export quality products, he has to refuse his customers. He does not have enough savings for the further investment into the current enterprise. In fact, his major generated income is spent on household expenses and his father’s medical expenses.

Therefore, Shehnaz has requested a loan for her son’s business to empower him for buying export quality cosmetic products. He hopes that now he can grow his business and can generate reasonable income. Shehnaz thanks Kiva and its field partner for this honorable support.
