Nazia's Group
In this Group: Nazia, Hajran, Mahtab, Sajida
Nazia has applied for a loan from the Kiva partner Asasah to improve her decorative embroidery business. She started this business part-time 10 years ago to share the financial burden with her husband, but now it has become a full-time job because she receives good number of orders every month which enable her to manage finances smoothly. With the loan, she will buy embroidery material such as beads, colored thread, clothes and sketches in bulk for her business.

She lives with her husband and 2 daughters in Multan which is a historic city of Pakistan. She owns a two room house there in the area of Samejabad. Her husband is a rickshaw driver and provides transport services to his clients and to school children. Her daughters are both enrolled in school and are getting their education.

She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 2nd loan application. In the previous loan year, she established good credit behavior and never missed any meetings.

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.
