Shabana's Group
In this Group: Shabana, Zahra
Shabana is a 49-year-old diligent woman. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with her husband and five children. Her husband has been running a school canteen for five years. Shabana, as a member of a two-person group, has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. Her husband would use the loan to purchase food supplies as the current stock in the canteen is almost finished. He would also do some repair work required in the canteen. This loan is very important for his business. Shabana is very thankful for Kiva and BRAC Pakistan. NOTE: In the picture, Shabana is raising her hand

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.
