Nasreen's Group
In this Group: Nasreen, Sakina
Nasreen is a 42-year-old married woman who lives in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. Her husband has been running an enterprise in which he provides a facility for embroidery work. He has been recruiting the workers for embroidery work on daily wages, including those who sit in the front of his shop and call the customers for embroidery. He also brings some material home for his wife because she helps him in the embroidery work. He is very much an expert in his profession. He is especially famous for bridal dresses. People like him for his art and appreciate for his efforts.

Now, the marriages season is going on and there is a lot of demand for his art. He wants to cope with the demand of bridal dresses, which is why he wants to buy stock of thread, fancy cloths, sequins, and pearls of various colors in advance.

Her husband requires some capital to buy desired inventory but he has already been investing all of his savings in his current business. So, she made a humble request to BRAC Pakistan for a loan. Through this loan, her husband will be able to buy stocks of thread, fancy cloths, sequins, and pearls of various colors.

Now, her husband is free of tension about the stock and puts his full concentration in his work. Nasreen is very glad and thankful to BRAC Pakistan.

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.
