In this Group: Perveen , Zubaida Begum, Zarina, Naseem
Perveen is married to M. A. and lives in Pakpattan, Pakistan, which is famous for its agricultural industry. Her house is located in Karampura which is a small residential area of the city. She moved there 20 years ago. Her husband works for a private organization with a reasonable income. Perveen has given birth to four sons and a daughter. Her two elder sons left their education and started work to financially support the family. Her eldest son sells cooking oil while the second one is a rickshaw driver and provides transport services to passengers. Her remaining children are enrolled in a local school and are getting their education.

Perveen has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, for her second son who wants to repair his rickshaw because it has gone rough and needs urgent repairing. Perveen is hopeful that, after repairing the rickshaw, her son will be able to provide better transport services to his passengers and make more profits. He has been in his business for the past 10 years.

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.
