I am Farhat Q., wife of Muhammad Jameel from the small town of Kasur, Pakistan. I am the mother of four: three sons and one daughter. All of my kids attend school and perform very well there. I myself studied till tenth grade and I am aware of the importance of going to school therefore, I want my children to finish their schooling.

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.
