In this Group: Shazia, Mujahida, Musarat
Ms. Shazia is a 40-year-old married woman and the mother of two sons and two daughters. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. All of the children are students. Her husband has been running a tire shop.

Shazia's brother is a taxi driver, but his income is insufficient. So, he is interested in purchasing a new taxi, which will help him to increase his savings and net income. For that, Shazia, as a member of a three-person lending group, has requested a loan from Kiva's Partner BRAC Pakistan for her brother.

She is hopeful that the loan will be a productive one for her brother.

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.
