Yasmeen's Group
In this Group: Yasmeen, Rukhsana, Mumtaz, Irshaad, Uzma, Zubaida
Yasmeen has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for her sewing and embroidery business. With the loan investment, she will buy a sewing machine and larger quantities of some embroidery materials such as beads and thread. This will allow her to improve her business conditions and increase her sales and profits.

Sewing and embroidery is a very common profession among ladies and there is a lot of competition. Yasmeen has been operating her business for many years, and she is confident about her success as a result of loan investment.

Her husband is an electrician by profession while her eldest son has a business selling medicine.

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

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.
