Nazia's Group
In this Group: Nazia, Violet, Suraiya, Azizan, Bushra, Ashran, Shagufta
Nazia has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to improve her blanket sales business. She started this business 8 years ago to financially support her husband, who is a driver by profession and his income was not enough to fulfill the basic needs of the family. With the loan, she will buy blankets in larger quantity which will allow her to sell to many more customers and make extra income.

She lives in a 3 room brick house with her family in a small city called Kot radha kishen, which is located in Punjab Pakistan and is famous for its dairy industry. Her house is located in Judgewala, which is a small residential area of the city. She came here with her family 10 years ago. She is the mother of 2 sons and a daughter. Both of her sons are enrolled in a local school and getting their education. Her daughter is only 4 months old. She is hopeful that she will be able to make positive changes to her business by investing loan money into it.

Note: In the photo, the lady holding a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Nazia.

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.
