In this Group: Ameen, Sharifan, Sharifan, Khursheed, Rasheeda, Rubina
Ameen is one member of this group loan from Kiva partner Asasah.

She is a caring and supportive lady. In order to help financially support her family, she does stitching works. She learned this art before her marriage and now is taking full advantage from it. She receives orders from different boutiques and ready-made clothes shops and completes the orders on time to earn for her family.

She belongs to Pakpattan, which is a small city of Pakistan known for its agriculture industry. She lives there in a two-room brick house with her family in the area of Peer Karian road. She moved there after her marriage.

She has given birth to two daughters and a son. All of them are enrolled in a local school and are getting their education.

Ameen’s husband is a very hardworking person. He operates a business of making wooden cots. He started this business 30 years ago and in this number of years he has successfully built a good reputation among his clients for his good work. He also makes other furniture like chairs and tables and sells to different furniture shops on profit.

Ameen has applied for a loan for her husband’s business. With the loan, her husband will buy wood and nails in larger quantity for making good quantity cots for selling.

She is hopeful that her husband will successfully be able to make his business more profitable after investing loan money into it.

She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her third loan application. In previous loan years, she has maintained good credit behavior and never missed any meeting.

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

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.
