Bushra is a working lady who sews clothes for her neighboring clients. She is very skillful in her work and receives a good number of orders every month. Her skills enable her to earn a reasonable amount of income. Her husband is a scrap dealer. He supplies scrap to different factories and to other scrap dealers. Bushra has given birth to eight children. Her eldest daughter left her education after matriculation and started an embroidery business. Four of her children are enrolled in a school and getting their education.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s scrap business. With the loan, he will buy scrap like used papers, plastic bottles, and iron in bulk to be able to increase his sales and profits. Bushra hopes that through the loan investment her husband's business will be improved further.

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.
