Zahida, 32 years old, is married and has 3 daughters. Two of her daughters are studying and the youngest one is not yet a year old. Zahida has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for her business selling plastic utensils. She operates her business from home and deals very professionally with her clients. Since she offers them good quality utensils at low rates, she makes good sales every month. Zahida will use this loan to buy plastic utensils in larger quantities in order to earn more profit. She is very confident that this loan will enable her business to become more profitable.

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.
