Bashiraan has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for the improvement of her crockery selling business. She is very supportive and has been operating her business for many years. Bashiraan plans to use this loan to buy crockery sets, glasses and cups in larger quantities and of different varieties and qualities that will allow her to earn more profit from her business by selling these items at higher prices.

Bashiraan has 3 sons and 3 daughters. Her eldest son is a mason and contributes to the family financially. Her two younger daughters are enrolled in a local school and getting their education. Bashiraan works very hard in her business and is very hopeful about its success after the loan investment.

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.
