Her husband’s name is M. S. and he is a farmer by profession. He owns a little piece of land where he grows different seasonal crops. He then cultivates them and sells to different shops and people for profit. His land is very fertile and he gets good crops from it every year.

Abida is a housewife who stays at home and does her household responsibilities. She is a very active lady and is raising her children with great care.

She is a new loan applicant and this is her first loan application to Asasah. She is hopeful that it will result in improving the financial condition for her family.

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.
