Munawar's Group
In this Group: Munawar, Munawar, Sajida, Safia, Shameem, Mariam
Munawar is married and 41 years old, and she runs a canteen in a nearby school. She sells different snacks and cold drinks, and also prepares her own local food which is very popular among school children. The income she earns helps her to pay the school fees for her 5 children who are studying in different classes. Her husband is a watchman. He takes care of his community people and earns a monthly income.

Munawar has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for her canteen business. With the loan investment, she will buy cooking materials, snacks and cold drinks that will allow her to earn more profits from her business. She is very confident that her business will grow further after the loan investment, and that will allow her children to continue their education.

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

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.
