Zulaikhan's Group
In this Group: Zulaikhan , Azra Parveen, Salma, Sidra
Zulaikhan lives in a mid-sized city called Vehari with her family. Her husband works in a factory while Zulaikhan runs a grocery shop out of her home. Presently, she is not running it because she has almost finished off her stock by selling it. She has changed her business to sewing. Now she runs a domestic sewing business. This business doesn’t give her the expected amount. That’s why she has decided to start the grocery business again. She mentioned that there is potential in the grocery business because her shop was the only one in her area. Zulaikhan has applied for a loan from Asasah to invest capital into buying groceries for her grocery shop. She is certain that she can increase her family's income by making positive changes to her shop.

Note: Zulaikhan is showing her sewing work in this photo.

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.
