Rubina's Group
In this Group: Rubina, Kalaran, Allah Rakhi
Rubina is age 45. She lives with her six children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

Her husband is a mechanic by profession. He repairs and services motorcycles as well as the damaged parts of motorcycles. He troubleshoots each motorcycle by taking full responsibility for the repairs. He considers his customers as his friends. Recently he moved his shop to another location due to disputes with the shop owner. Most of the repair tools have been lost and his cylinder air compressor pump stopped working.

Therefore, Rubina has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan, so that her husband will be able to buy a display board, spare parts and a cylinder air compressor pump. In this way, he will be able to provide repair services to his customers.

Rubina thanks 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.
