Tasleem's Group
In this Group: Tasleem , Sakina Bibi, Suraiya Bibi, Kosar Bibi, Yasmeen
Tasleem lives in Kasur, which is known for its tannery industry. It is located in Punjab, Pakistan and is an old historic city. She is married to R. A. who has a dairy business. He has some buffalos at his home. He gets up early in the morning and gets milk from his buffalos. He then sells that milk to his community clients and generates income for the family. Tasleem herself is a housewife who stays at home and does her household work. In her spare time, she also supports her husband by taking care of his cattle and getting milk from them.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah because her husband wants to buy another buffalo to expand his dairy business. By purchasing another buffalo, he will be able to increase the milk production to sell to more customers to earn better profits. Tasleem is hopeful that a loan will help her husband make more profits and improve the living standards of his family. She is a new loan applicant and this is her first loan application to Asasah.

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

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.
