In this Group: Naseem Akhtar, Shamim Akhtar, Tahira, Gulnaz, Shazia, Shahnaz Bibi, Arfa Bibi, Asia
Naseem Akhtar is an ambitious lady. She is involved in a business selling bed-sheets. She is a mother of four children and all of them are getting an education. Naseem is an illiterate woman. She couldn’t get education because her parents were in a poor financial situation. But she doesn’t want the same destiny to befall her children and so she works hard to provide them with an education. Her husband is a driver by profession and drives a rickshaw. He provides transportation facilities to his passengers. His fares are very fair and affordable. He has been in this business for many years.

Naseem has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s business. He will invest the loan in repairing his rickshaw because its engine is creating problems and it won't drive for more than a few hours. Naseem is hopeful that through the loan her husband will be able to complete repairing his rickshaw and will be able to offer his services without any problem.

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.
