In this Group: Suriya, Razia, Sajida, Kousar, Salma, Shakila
Suriya is married and has three sons and a daughter. Due to financial constrains she couldn’t provide them with an education. She is very supportive in nature and sews clothes for her local clients. She got these skills from her mother and now she earns a reasonably good income every month which helps her to pay her utility bills.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for further expansion of her husband’s animal-selling business. With the loan investment he will buy larger numbers of goats and sheep. He will raise them and will then sell them to butchers. He is very experienced in his business and Suriya is hopeful of his business success after the loan investment.

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.
