Naseem's Group
In this Group: Naseem, Tahira, Najma
Naseem is a 53-year-old lady residing in Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of four children. Her husband is engaged in providing transport services by driving a three-wheeler auto rickshaw and earns the income to meet the daily expanses of the family. For the past few days, his rickshaw is not working properly; therefore, he is unable to generate any amount of income.

In order to help her husband, Naseem has applied for a Kiva loan with three members of BRAC Pakistan. Her husband needs to maintain his auto rickshaw so that he can provide better transport services. It will be positive for Naseem to make savings to fulfill the needs of the entire family. She is very thankful to Kiva and 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.
