Razia's Group
In this Group: Razia , Sheema, Kalsoom, Yasmeen
Razia operates a clothes sewing business. She sews women's clothing specifically. She has set charges for every kind of dress. For designer clothes, she asks for 150 PKR, and for simple stitching she demands only 100 PKR. The ladies of her community approach her because she returns the clothes on time and stitches their suits well.

Her husband operates a strainer-selling business. He supplies utensil sellers and generates profit. He sells both steel and plastic strainers. Now he wants to diversify his range of products with plastic utensils. Razia is applying for a loan for her husband’s business so he can purchase plastic utensils (plates, glasses, and jugs) in large quantities to expand his business.

Additional Information

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.
