Tasleem akhtar lives in the city Multan, Pakistan with her family. A talented lady, Tasleem operates a clothes-selling business to financially support her husband. She purchases clothes from her nearby market and sells them to different areas of the community. Earlier she sold her clothes by going door to door in the community. Now they have become her good customers and her son delivers their orders to their houses. She has been in this business for over five years.

She has applied for a loan from Asasah (microfinance institute in Pakistan) to invest the loan amount in her clothes selling business. She is hopeful that the loan amount will help her to complete her orders on time for her customers.

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.
