A very talented lady, Naseem owns and operates a clothes sewing business at her home. The sewing business is a very demanding business in Lahore because Lahore is also famous for its new fashion trends. She mainly gets orders from her neighborhood clients. She offers them quality services, which gives her a good return in the form of money.
Her husband sells shawls (a kind of cloth worn over shoulders and body). He has a small shop in the market where he specifically sells these shawls. He sells different kinds of shawls, such as embroidered, simple and colorful. He imports the shawls from Multan city at cheap rates and sells them through his shop for a good profit.
Naseem is the mother of six children. Her eldest son is a rickshaw driver and the one next to him is a property dealer. The last four children are enrolled in a school and are getting their education.
Naseem has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s business. He will buy shawls with the loan amount. He has been doing this business for over seven years and Naseem is hopeful that the loan will bring positive changes to his business.
She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her second loan application. In the previous loan year, she built a good credit record and never missed any meetings.

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.
