Tahira's Group
In this Group: Tahira, Shahnaz, Manzooran, Rashda, Muniran
Tahira is a very caring person by nature. She stays at home and carries out her responsibilities of a housewife very well. Her husband is a loader by profession and uses a donkey cart for his business. With his cart, he loads goods and delivers them to the designated places. He is very active and performs his tasks very well. Tahira has given birth to two children. Her eldest son is in kindergarten and the youngest one is only two years old.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband who wants to buy a donkey because his current donkey is old and he cannot bear heavy loads. By purchasing a young, healthy donkey, her husband will be able to work better and earn more income. He has been operating this business for the past five years and Tahira is hopeful that a loan will help him improve his business and increase his income. She is a regular user of Asasah and this is her third loan application. In previous loan years, she has maintained good credit behavior and never missed any meetings.

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

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.
