Amna is 36 years old. She is married and has three daughters and a son. Her two elder daughters do decorative embroidery and the other two children are getting their education.

Her husband is a master tailor and Amna is an embroidery expert. She does embroidery on clothes for her neighboring clients and earns reasonably good profits. Now her two daughters also work with her and support her in completing the orders on time.

Amna has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for further expansion of her husband’s tailoring business. With the loan investment, he will buy a new sewing machine and will also hire a worker for his assistance. This will allow him to complete the orders on time and increase his profits. He has been operating his business for the past many years and Amna is confident about his success after investing the loan.

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.
