A talented lady, Sakina performs her duty as a seamstress. She sews clothes for her neighboring clients to supplement the household income. She is good at her art and receives regular orders every month.
Her husband is a private entrepreneur and operates a small grocery store. He stocks all the necessary items of a grocer to fulfill the needs of his customers.
Sakina has 3 sons and a daughter. All of them are enrolled in a school and getting their education, except her eldest son. He got his education through the fifth class and now works in the factory. He supports his family financially from his earnings.
Sakina has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to financially assist her husband. With the loan, he will buy groceries in bulk quantity to further expand his business.

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.
