Zahida's Group
In this Group: Zahida , Zainab, Nasreen, Meeran, Sonia
Zahida is very supportive of her family. She always takes steps to give them comfort. She has given birth to five children, and all of them (except the youngest one) are getting an education.

Zahida sells clothes to financially support her family. She purchases clothes from the city of Faisalabad, famous for its textiles, and sells to her neighborhood clients. Her husband's name is Rasheed A.. He is a loader by profession. He loads everything from fruits and vegetables to construction supplies and delivers to the designated places. To deliver the items, he used his own donkey cart. He earns income on a daily business which helps manage the household expenses.

Zahida has applied for a loan from Asasah to invest in her husband’s business. He will buy a new donkey cart with the money, because the old cart has become rotted in different areas which gives him trouble loading items. Zahida is hoping that this investment will help her husband work better and increase his income.

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.
