Sughran is a very supportive lady. Her husband, S. A., operates a grocery store in the market. At his store, he sells daily use items such as cooking oil, sugar and spices at reasonable rates. He is the only person earning income for the family. Sughran is a housewife, staying at home and doing household work. She is the mother of four children, three of whom are enrolled in a local school to get their education. She is a resident of Mian Channu, a small city in Pakistan known for its agriculture industry.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to help her husband expand his grocery business. With this loan, he will buy groceries in bulk in order to earn better profits by selling larger quantities of groceries. He has been operating this business for the past six years and Sughran is confident that he will be able to improve his business with the help of a loan investment.

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.
