Rani, 22, lives in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. Her husband owns a small shop where he sells beauty products. He contributes his full income for household expenses.

He always tries to establish his business by offering the latest cosmetics products. Nowadays, the latest cosmetics products introduced in the market are much in demand, and expensive as well.

Rani requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan; she will give the full amount to her husband so that he can buy the latest cosmetic products such as facial cream, hair color, makeover kit, lipstick, nail polish, etc.

She hopes that through this amount his business will be enhanced.
