In this Group: Shehzadi, Asia, Hameedan, Shahnaz, Shazia
Shehzadi is a 44 year-old woman. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a responsible mother of four children. Her husband owns a restaurant which is the only source of income for the family. He wants to purchase food items for the restaurant. They include flour, pulses, beef, mutton and chicken for preparing dishes.

However, due to the lack of money, he finds it difficult. Therefore, Shehzadi, as a member of a five person lending group, has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan, to help her husband to cover the cost of purchasing food items. With the profits expected from this loan, he intends to purchase a variety of vegetables and chicken for the restaurant. Shehzadi is very thankful to Kiva.

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.
