Rukhsana's Group
In this Group: Rukhsana , Bushra, Rani
Rukhsana is a resident of the city of Lahore with her husband and children. She is a housewife and stays at home to manage the household chores and take care of her family and home. Her husband sells construction supplies. He has had this business for the last nine years. He has a shop in the main market which enables him to reach more customers to sell his supplies. His business is not doing well these days, because he does not have sufficient stock to meet the orders of his customers.

Rukhsana has applied for a loan from Asasah to help her husband. With the loan, her husband will buy construction supplies such as cement and sand in bulk for his shop which will increase his chance of making more money. Rukhsana is sure that her husband is a very hard worker and he will never let her down.

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.
