In this Group: Abida, Razia Begum, Sugran Bibi, Ghulam Fatima, Kaniz Fatima
Abida has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the further improvement of her clothes sewing business. With the loan, she will purchase a new sewing machine that will allow her to complete the orders on time and increase her profits. She is 30 years old and she started this business to financially support her husband who has a construction supplies business. He makes contracts with different construction companies and fulfills their orders to earn an income. Abida is the mother of four children. She couldn’t educate them due to financial constraints. Along with her business, she performs her daily routine tasks very well.

She is very hopeful that her business will improve a lot after investing the loan into it. She has been doing her business for many years.

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.
