Zahida parveen is a 33 year old woman and resides in Lahore in Pakistan. Lahore is famous for its historical places and its Punjabi foods. She is a seamstress and offers her services in the community. She sews clothes for her neighbors and earns a good income. Her customers are very happy with her. She utilizes her income to pay for the utilities expenses.

She is a mother of five children: one son and four daughters. All of her children are enrolled in school and are getting an education. Her husband's name is S.

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.
