Sajida has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to improve her husband’s shoe-making business. He has been operating his business for the past 20 years and has a good number of business contacts. These days he has a big order to fulfill for which he wants to buy raw materials. With the loan, he will buy leather, nails, glue, and shoe polish.

She herself is a seamstress who sews clothes for her community clients to supplement the income for her family. She is the mother of four children and all of them stay at home.

Sajida is very confident that after investing the loan in her husband's business, her husband will be able to finish the order on time and make great profits.

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.
