In this Group: Shahla, Shahida Bibi , Tanzeela Bibi , Azra Bibi , Parveen Bibi
Shahla has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the further expansion of her husband’s spare parts business. He started his business 10 years ago with a small investment. Now he is well established in his business but he needs continuous investment to purchase spare parts for his shop. He is a very hard worker with a good business sense. Shahla is hopeful that her husband’s business will bring more profits to him after making an investment into it.

She is a mother of five children. Two of her children are studying while her other three children are young and not of school-going age yet. Shahla is a very active and supportive lady who does her household responsibilities very well and tries her best to provide comfort to her family.

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

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.
