Shehla's Group
In this Group: Shehla, Shumaila, Fazia
Shehla is a 25-year-old lady, residing in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. She is a mother of three children. Her husband is a butcher by profession; he has been running his own meat shop for past ten years. He is the guardian of his family and responsible to fulfill the needs of the entire family and manage the household.

Shehla's husband wants to buy meat in bulk quantity from the slaughter house for resale purposes, but due to some financial constraints he is unable to buy the meat for his business. Therefore his wife Shehla has applied for a Kiva group loan from its field partner BRAC Pakistan. With the help of this loan amount she will financially assist her husband to buy meat for his business and resale purposes.

For this financial assistance, Shehla 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.
