Mahraja is a 45-year-old widow. She is an independent and responsible woman. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, with her seven children: four sons and three daughters. Her elder son is a driver, and his income is not enough. So Mahraja provides tailoring services to try to help her son meet the household expenses. She is an excellent tailor, and she wants her daughter to continue her business in future.

She is interested in purchasing a variety of tailoring materials like threads, cloth, etc. For that reason, she has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. She dreams to go for Umrah (pilgrimage). She is hopeful that the loan will be a productive one 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.
