Nusrat has applied for a loan for the 2nd time from Kiva partner Asasah. She wants to financially assist her husband in his crockery business. With the loan, her husband will buy more crockery to sell in his shop. His shop is located in the market and Nusrat is hopeful that an investment will bring more profits for her husband.

Nusrat lives in a small city in Pakistan called Jaranwala. It is known for its agriculture industry. She lives there in a 2 roomed brick house in the area named Mughalpura. She moved here 3 years ago. She is the mother of 2 children. Her daughter is studying in kindergarten and her son is too young to attend to school.

Nusrat has a buffalo at her home. She takes care of it and sells its milk to her neighboring clients. She also does sewing works to supplement the income of her family. She learned this art from her mother before marriage and it is now becomes a good source of making extra income.

Note: In the photo, the lady with a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Nusrat.

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.
