Parveen Akhtar Baji is a widow who has resided in a city named Kasur, Pakistan, for the past 10 years. The city of Kasur is famous for its sweetmeats. Parveenbaji operates a clothes-sewing business because this is the only craft she knows. Through this work she is able to send her two sons to school.

She is applying for a loan to start a cloth-selling business because sewing clothes is very time-intensive work and requires lots of hard work.

She is the group leader of five other women from her locality:

- Sugran Baji wants a loan to buy clothes to sell.

- Zarina Baji wants a loan to buy shoes to sell.

- Riffat Parveen Baji wants a loan to buy chairs, a mirror, and scissors for her salon.

- Sugran Baji wants a loan to buy cosmetics to sell.

- Razia Begum Baji wants a loan to buy iron to sell.

This is a group loan. The loan funds will be distributed among the group members, each of whom will invest in her own business. The members mutually guarantee one another's loans. If one member does not repay, the other members are responsible.

Additional Information

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
