My name is Anwar sultana. I am 55 years old and married. I live in a city of kind hearted people named Borewala, Pakistan. I have lived here for the past 20 years. My husband's name is M. A.. He is a fruit seller by profession, and has sold fruit for the past 10 years. I help my husband to pack fruit in cartons. I have one son who is a contractor by profession. He takes building construction jobs on contract.
I am applying for a loan to buy more seasonal fruit to expand my husband’s fruit selling business.
I am a group leader of some women in my locality. Rukhsana baji wants a loan to buy cosmetics to resell. Fatima baji wants a loan to buy iron to resell. Khurram hussain baji wants a loan to buy clothes for her cloth selling business. Zahida parveen baji wants a loan to buy jewelry to resell.
This is a group loan. The loan funds will be distributed among the group members, each of whom will invest in their own business. The members mutually guarantee each other's loans. If one member does not repay, the other members are responsible.
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.
