Manzooran is the wife of M. H. and she lives in a city called Arifwala in Pakistan. Arifwala is known for its agriculture industry. She owns a two-room house and lives with her family in the area Zia Nagar. A very active and talented lady, Manzooran operates an embroidery business in her home. Despite her old age, she does this work to support her family financially. She enjoys doing her work. She crafts beautiful embroidered designs on clothes. Many girls in the community come to her to learn her embroidery skills as well which gives her excitement and happiness.

Her husband is in the business of selling sanitary supplies. He runs a shop in the market where he sells sanitary supplies such as taps, water pipes, etc. to his customers for a profit. He also knows sanitary fitting services which he offers to his clients. Both of them are very hardworking and manage their businesses well. They want to set a good legacy for their children so they feel proud of them.

Manzooran has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, for her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy a larger quantity of sanitary supplies to put in his shop for sale. She is hopeful that this investment will take her husband's business to a more profitable position.

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.
