Rani belongs to a poor family and it is very difficult for her to meet household expenses with poor earnings. In fact, her husband owns a scrap shop and deals with scrap iron, aluminum, plastic bottles and other scrap goods. He uses a manual four-wheel cart and calls to the people loudly in the streets, asking who is willing to sell scrap goods.
It is very difficult for him to announce loudly to attract people to him on the streets. He wants to buy a speaker and a tape to repeat his announcement.
Therefore, Rani is requesting a loan for her husband, so that he can buy a speaker and a tape. With these products, Rani hopes that her husband will feel relaxed and drive his cart smoothly in the streets.
Rani is very impressed with this honorable support. She says thanks to Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan.

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.
