Shahnaz's Group
In this Group: Shahnaz, Batool, Zahida, Sakina, Rubina
My name is Shahnaz M.. I am married and a mother of eight. I live with my family in a small town of Kot Radha Kishan, Pakistan. Four of my kids attend school while four others do not. My husband works at a government organization while I raise goats at home. When these goats reach a reasonable age I sell them for decent profits. I would like to buy a few more goats.

I would like to borrow along with a group of other women: Batool H., who needs this loan to expand her agriculture business; Zahida B., who also raises crops; Sakina B., who will use the loan to improve their embroidery business; and Rubina B., who will buy a dairy cow with her share of the loan.

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.
