Rubina is a 44-year-old married woman and the responsible mother of two sons and four daughters. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. She is an independent and hardworking woman. Her husband is doing a private job.

For the last 22 years, Rubina has been in the garment business. She purchases garments from different areas and sells them in the market nearby. With her little income she helps her husband to meet the family needs and the costs of their children's education. Presently Rubina needs to purchase a variety of garments for her business. For that she has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. Purchasing more garments will allow her to expand her business.

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.
