She crafts beautiful embroidery on clothes which helps her in attracting many customers to her. Her clientele base is her community ladies who give her regular orders due to her neat and good work.
She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her embroidery business. With the loan, she will buy embroidery material such as beads, colored thread and cloth in bulk to be able to meet the requirements of her customers and increase her profits. She is hopeful that her business will expand further and increase her income.
Note: In the photo, the lady with a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Nasreen.
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.
