Najma Perveen's Group
Najma helps her family financially by doing sewing work. She gets orders from her relatives and neighbors and charges from them 100-130 PKRs for each dress. Her earning allows her to pay for the utilities and to manage the kitchen in her home. She has given birth to three sons and a daughter who are all illiterate because they couldn’t provide them with a better education.
She has applied for a loan from Asasah for her husband. With the loan, he will buy fertilizer and seeds in bulk and meet the orders of his customers.
Najma hopes that by investing money in her husband’s business, he will be able to make more money, which will help Najma’s family to enjoy a better financial life.
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.
