Asma is 29, married, and a mother of two, living in Lahore. She is a caring and supportive housewife. Her husband runs a men's salon in the market near their house. He is a soft-spoken and hardworking person. He provides services like hair cuts, facials, massages, shaves, etc. His customers are content with his services.

Due to constant usage, his salon furniture is depreciating and now he wants to replace it with new furniture. Also, new furniture would create better ambiance in his salon and more customers will be attracted to it. But, this is not possible with his current income. Therefore, his wife has applied for a micro-finance loan from BRAC Pakistan, a Kiva partner, to help her husband.
