Fehmida's Group
In this Group: Fehmida , Mariyam
Fehmida is a 32-year-old woman. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. She is a responsible mother of two children.

Fehmida's husband is a rickshaw driver by profession. For many days, his rickshaw has not been working properly and he has been unable to generate any income. He wants to repair the rickshaw as soon as possible. However, due to a lack of money, he finds it difficult to cover the cost of repairs. Therefore Fehmida has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to help her husband to cover the cost of repairing his rickshaw. This will help him to continue his business. Fehmida is very thankful to Kiva.

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.
