Safina is only able to provide an education to her elder daughter who is 16 years old and studying in class 9th.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the further expansion of her sewing business. With the loan, she will buy a new sewing machine that will allow her to finish the orders on time and increase her profits. She has been operating her business for the past seven years and is very confident that an investment will be a profitable one for her.

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.
