Nasreen is 31 years old. In order to financially support her family she sews clothes for her neighboring clients. She is very skillful and receives good number of orders every month. She also does embroidery work if she gets any orders for that from her clients.

She is married to M. A. who is a driver and provides transport services to his passengers. Nasreen is the mother of five children. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the expansion of her sewing business. Through the loan, she will buy a new sewing machine which will help her finish the orders on time and increase her profits.

She is hopeful that this investment will help grow her business and help her enrolling her eldest son, who is now 5 years of age, in school. She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 2nd loan application. In the previous loan year, she paid her installments on time and never missed any meeting.

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.
