Maryam's Group
In this Group: Maryam , Bushra, Parveen Akhtar, Maria
Maryam is a citizen of a city called Lahore, famous in Pakistan for its historical places and Punjabi foods. She owns a small house with two rooms and has been living in it with her family for over fifteen years. She has given birth to five children. Two of them are working and the others don’t do anything. She wants to give her children better educational facilities but due to their scanty financial resources, she hasn't been able to achieve her wish.

Maryam is a very caring lady. She takes care of her house and family and cooks healthy food for them. Her husband is a rickshaw driver by trade but he hasn’t got his own rickshaw, and that’s why he can't earn as much as the family requires.

Therefore Maryam has applied for a loan from Asasah for her husband. With the loan amount he will buy a rickshaw and increase his household income.

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.
