Naseem is 50 years old and has given birth to three sons. She couldn’t educate them due to financial constraints. Her husband is involved in the sweetmeat business. He runs a sweetmeat shop in the market where he offers good tasty sweetmeats to his customers; that’s why his sweetmeat products earn him good profits every month.

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.
