Zarina is the wife of B. A. and resides in a city named Vehari in Pakistan. Vehari is a small city famous for its agricultural industry. She is an uneducated lady and couldn’t get an education due to the poor financial condition of her family. In her childhood, she had a great desire in her heart to get a good education, but it couldn’t get fulfilled because her father had a big family to serve. She is very thankful to her mother, that she taught her the skill of embroidery, and now she is getting good benefits from this work. She receives orders from her neighboring customers and earns good income by completing them on time.

Her husband is a private entrepreneur in a fruits & vegetables selling business. He has a shop in the market where he serves his customers and earns good profits. He has been in this business for over 7 years.

Zarina has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy seasonal fruits & vegetables in bulk quantity and improves his sales. Zarina is hopeful that this investment will bring her husband’s business to a more profitable position and increase his monthly income.

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.
