Robina is 46 years old, married and has 5 children; 3 of them are sons and 2 are daughters. Due to financial constraints, Robina couldn’t provide them an education.

Her husband is a daily wage labor. His income is not guaranteed every day because sometimes he doesn’t get any work.

Robina also supports her husband by sewing clothes for her community ladies. She is a very talented sewing expert and receives a good number of orders every month.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah because her current sewing machine is creating problems and she is unable to meet the deadlines. She is confident that by purchasing a new sewing machine, her business will improve and she will be able to earn more profits for her family.

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.
