Zarina's Group
In this Group: Zarina, Gulzaran, Safeeran
Zarina B. lives in a small area of the city of Vehari, Pakistan, called Anwerabad. She lives in a two-room brick house with her family. Her husband has a scrap business and she supports him by selling clothes. She has a number of clients in her area and in neighboring villages where she sells her clothes to earn an income.

Zarina B.’s husband’s business is not doing well these days due to the shortage of scrap material. Therefore, she has applied for a loan from Asasah to help her husband who will invest the money in his business to buy more scrap material. She is hopeful that her husband’s business will stand on its feet again with the help of this investment.

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.
