Robina Kousar's Group
In this Group: Robina Kousar, Kosar, Shahnaz
Robina Kousar lives in the small city of Borewala in south Punjab, Pakistan. She is a thirty-year-old lady with a daughter in sixth grade. Her husband is a carpenter who not only makes furniture on order, but also has a furniture showroom in the market where he displays his handmade furniture such as bed sets, tables and chairs. He has been in this business for over 20 years and understands about different trends in the city. Robina is a housewife. She wants to support her husband financially in his business which is why she has applied for a loan from Asasah to buy wood in larger quantities to execute larger orders on time. Robina is very confident that her husband has the ability to improve his business by making positive use of the loan.
This is the first time she has applied for a microfinance loan and she hopes that it will be profitable.

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.
