Shazia Naaz is a strong-willed mother of two who was widowed at a young age. Despite going through an extremely tough time, she managed to pull herself up for the sake of her kids. There was no source of income when her husband died and her children were very young at that time. Some people offered to help her but nobody provided her with sustainable means to earn income. When there was nothing left, Shazia came up with an idea of running a parlor. She started giving beauty parlor services at her home to the ladies in her neighborhood.
Soon her parlor became known and ladies visited her but her services remained limited. She had no investment to expand her salon and buy cosmetics and products for extended services such as facial and manicure/pedicure. Shazia was also covering household expenses from the little amount she earned. She has been doing the parlor business for the past 15 years and reached out to Seed Out for financial assistance. She has requested a loan of PKR 40,000 to expand her beauty parlor.
She plans on buying cosmetics, parlor items, seats, mirrors, and other products to attract a broader range of customers. She will be able to earn more income and properly fulfill her household needs.
