Khalida's Group
In this Group: Khalida, Mumtaz, Sughran, Sakina, Naseem Akhter
Khalida has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her sewing and embroidery business. With the loan investment, she will buy a new sewing machine that will allow her to complete orders on time, because her current machine has become rough and needs replacement. She will also buy beads, thread, and embroidery frames for the improvement of her embroidery business as well.

Her husband sells wood. In his area, people use wood for cooking food and purchase wood from him regularly. Khalida has given birth to five children. Only two of them are able to get an education, while the others remain at home. She is hopeful that the loan will help her make her business more profitable by offering better quality services to her customers.

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.
