Khadija's Group
In this Group: Khadija, Parween, Shaheen, Shahida, Balqees
My name is Khadija S.. I was married 25 years ago and reside with my family in Lahore, Pakistan, where I am the mother of seven: six boys and one girl. My husband is a turner and I sew pants, for which I receive $1 for every twelve pants I stitch. I would now like to get more orders for stitching and require a loan to buy some items for this purpose.

My group members are: Parween B., who sews clothes; Shaheen B., whose husband operates a snacks stall; Shahida, who knits wool items, and Balqees B., who will use her share of the loan to expand the family’s grocery store.
All these women are hardworking entrepreneurs, and I want them to prosper in their lives.

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.
