Abida's husband is a fruit vendor by profession. His shop is located in the market where he offers his clients fresh seasonal fruits at good prices.
Abida has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, for the further expansion of her husband’s fruit selling business. With the loan, he will buy fresh seasonal fruits for selling in his shop. He has been operating his business for the past three years and Abida hopes that after the loan investment his business will grow further.

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.
