Sobia has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, for her husband who is a milk seller and wants to buy another buffalo to expand his dairy business further. The loan will help him increase the production of milk and sell to more customers.

Sobia is a talented lady involved in making pranday (an ornament used to tie back hair). She sells her product to different cosmetics shops in the market and generates income for the family. She is an active young lady who performs her household activities very well. She is the mother of two daughters. Both of them are very young and have not started school yet.

Sobia is hopeful that an investment will be a profitable one for her husband, and he will be able to take his 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.
