Khursheed's Group
In this Group: Khursheed, Shehnaz
Khursheed is 45 years old and lives with her six children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

Her son has been running a mobile-phone shop for a couple of years and earning sufficient income. With troubleshooting the mobiles, he also sells the mobile accessories such as chargers, bodies, data cables, etc., and provides the recharge facilities of different networks.

Nowadays a lot of demand has increased for mobile accessories and for recharging. Sometimes he has to refuse his customers. But he does not have savings to further invest into his business because he already has spent his all savings on household expenses.

Therefore, Khursheed has requested a loan so she can empower her son so he can buy additional accessories and extra credit for recharge facilities.

Khursheed thanks Kiva and its field partner, BRAC Pakistan, over this honorable support.

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.
