Sughran belongs to Pakpattan where she owns a small house of two rooms and has been living in it with her family in the area of Khanpura for the past 10 years. Pakpattan is a small city of Pakistan and known for its dairy industry. She is an old married lady, and her husband’s name is H. M. A.. Due to her older age, she spends her time at home and manages the household responsibilities. She is the mother of a son and four daughters. Her son is the eldest among her children and operates a herbal medicine business. He also treats different diseases by preparing herbal medicines.

Sughran has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the expansion of her son’s business. With the loan, he will buy different herbs to make better quality herbal medicines to treat his patients in a far better way. He has been operating this business for many years and Sughran is confident that her son’s business will improve further after the loan investment, and her family will be able to live a better life as a result.

She is a new loan user and this is her first loan application to Asasah. She hopes that it will bring good improvements to her son’s business.

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.
