Naseem's Group
In this Group: Naseem, Rasoolan
Naseem, 53, lives in Lahore with her husband and six children.

Naseem has grown old and does not have enough power to manage her household activities. She wants to do the marriage of her son so that her daughter-in-law could hold all the household activities. Her son has been running a barber shop for many years. He wants to buy new instruments and furniture but his financial condition does not allow him to buy new instruments.

Due to his low purchasing power, Naseem requested a loan to empower her son so he could easily buy new instruments such as scissors, combs, shaving machine, front mirror and revolving chair. Naseem hopes that this loan will work positively and she would be able to make some savings for household expenses.
Naseem say thanks to Kiva and to it 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.
