Khursheed is requesting a loan from KIVA's partner Asasah for her brother’s animal sales business. He will use the loan to buy goats and sheep in larger numbers. He will raise them and sell them to butchers for a profit. Khursheed's brother has been operating his business for many years and Khursheed is confident that an investment will enable him to be more productive and to increase his income.

Khursheed is a housewife, staying at home and managing her household responsibilities. Her husband has a job. Khursheed is the mother of 2 children, both very young and not yet of school going age. Khursheed is a very responsible person and is always willing to help her family in difficult times. She is hopeful that her brother will make good use of this loan and increase his income by expanding his business.

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.
