Bano's Group
In this Group: Bano, Naziran, Asiya
Bano is the age of 41. She is living with her family in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She belongs to a small family, but she has five children. Her husband’s income is not good; this is the reason that sometimes, he fails to provide basic needs for his family.

She is taking a loan for her husband’s painting shop; in fact, her husband provides the services of banner writing for different kinds of advertisements. His writing is very attractive because he has been writing banners for many years and has great practice in banner writing. He uses pieces of cheap cloth, paint and brushes for banner writing.

He does not have enough stock of paint and cloth to continue his services. Therefore, Bano requested a loan for her husband so that he could buy multi-colored cans of paint, brushes and cloth.

Bano says thank to Kiva and to its field partner BRAC Pakistan.

Note: Bano is representing herself by raising her hand.

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.
