Sajida's Group
In this Group: Sajida, Bushra
Sajida, age 54, is a mother of three children. Her husband owns an embroidery shop in the market. This is the only source of income for the family. He needs to purchase a new variety of embroidery material to resell. This will help him to offer more variety to his customers and to continue his work efficiently and professionally. However, due to lack of money, he finds it difficult.

For that, his wife Sajida, as a member of a two-person lending group, is requesting a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan with the goal of helping her husband. He will purchase an embroidery machine and a new variety of embroidery materials.

Sajida is feeling happy that she will be able to help her husband with the loan amount. 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.
