Kosar is a very supportive and active lady. She doesn’t have any skills but she performs her duties as a housewife very efficiently and is always ready to support her husband in the time of need. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband who is a rickshaw driver. With the loan, he will repair his rickshaw because its engine is creating problems. Kosar is hopeful that after repairing his rickshaw, her husband will be able to provide better quality transport services to his passengers. She is the mother of two sons and two daughters. Her elder son is also a rickshaw driver while her eldest daughter does sewing for her neighboring clients. They both do work to financially contribute to the family.

Note: In the photo, the lady with a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Kosar.

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.
