She is a housewife, staying at home to take care of her children and family. In her spare time, she sews clothes to supplement the income of her family. She mainly works for her neighboring clients and due to her quality work, they prefer to give her orders above other businesswomen of the community.
Her husband's name is A. S. and he runs a grocery shop in the market. He offers different grocery items that are used daily, such as rice, cooking oil, spices and lentils, etc., to his clients through his shop. His shop is located in a busy place, so in order to meet the requirements of his customers, he has to keep groceries in bulk every time in his grocery shop; otherwise, the customers will go to other grocery shops and that will affect his sales.
Therefore, Gulzar has applied for a loan for her husband’s business. With the loan amount, he will buy the groceries in bulk quantities, which enables him to fulfill the orders of his customers on a timely basis and makes his customers become regulars.
Gulzar is hopeful that this investment will bring positive changes to her husband’s business and he will be able to successfully fulfill the requirements of his customers and increase the household income as well.
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.
