Dilshad, who is raising her hand in the photo, is a housewife, and she also provides full support to her husband in operating his livestock and diary business by taking care of the animals and giving them food on time. She has given birth to a son and a daughter, both of whom work as farmers.

Dilshad has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for the improvement of her family business. With the loan, her husband will buy a buffalo to increase the business's milk productivity. This will allow him to fulfill the dairy needs of clients in his community and increase his profits. Dilshad is very hopeful that her family business will grow by purchasing another buffalo and that her family will be able to improve its living standard as a result.

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.
