Rabia lives in a small city of Punjab called Kausr, famous in Pakistan for its leather industry. She is 27 years old, divorced and doesn’t have children. She lives in a three-room brick house with her brothers. She keeps herself busy making embroidered clothes for her neighboring clients. She is a skillful lady. She knows different embroidery techniques and applies those techniques on clothes to give them a new look. She receives regular orders due to the quality of work. Both her brothers adopted the embroidery work as a profession just like their sister Rabia. They have their own shop in the market where they receive regular orders and complete embroidered dresses to earn their income.

Rabia has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her embroidery business. With the loan, she will buy embroidery items such as clothes, beads, sketches and colored thread in bulk and makes embroidered dresses to sell to different shops to earn a living. She is a new client of Asasah and is hopeful that it will be a profitable experience for her.

Note: In the picture, the lady who is raising her hand is Rabia.

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.
