Anwer's Group
In this Group: Anwer , Goshi , Uzma , Rani Saleem, Zakia
Anwer is a married, 57-year-old, very active woman. She does not have any children, and she lives with her husband in a 2-room brick house in the colony of Fateh sher in Sahiwal, where she has lived for the past 30 years. Sahiwal, she explains, is a small city in Pakistan that is known for its agriculture industry. Her husband is 64 years old, and his name is S. A.. He works in court with a lawyer. By doing so, he has an extensive knowledge of the law and court matters.

To earn a living, Answer operates a jewelry-making business. At the same time, she effectively manages her household responsibilities. Due to the high-quality service she provides, she has both commercial (different jewelers throughout the city) and residential clients (community members who place regular orders with her).

Anwer hopes that her loan application through Asasah will benefit her jewelry-making business by increasing her profits. With the loan proceeds, she would like to buy wires, beads, and glue in bulk, which she will use to make jewelry in bulk for re-sale purposes. This would be her first loan through Asasah, and she plans on saving the money she expects to earn as a result of the loan for when she is older.

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.
