Parveen's Group
In this Group: Parveen, Sadaf, Saima
Parveen, age 51, is the leader of this borrower group. She adores her family and her husband works very hard, so that his family can have a good and respectable life.

Her husband sells sanitary goods, such as pipes, shower heads, PVC pipes, etc. in the main market. His net income is too low to meet the family's needs. Presently, the stock of his shop is depleted and he needs additional capital to purchase a variety of goods to sell.

Therefore, to help her husband, Parveen, as a member of a three-person lending group, has requested a loan from Kiva partner, BRAC Pakistan. Parveen's husband will use the loan to buy pipes, shower heads, plastic and PVC pipes to sell in his business. With the profits expected from this loan, he intends to expand his business, so that he can eventually construct a small house for his family.

Parveen hopes that the loan will be helpful for her husband's business. She is thankful to Kiva lenders and to 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.
