Ameeran's Group
In this Group: Ameeran, Najma Bibi , Kokab , Bushra Bibi , Shamim Akhtar
Ameeran is married with two sons. Her elder son works in a factory and her youngest son is 16 years old and stays at home. Ameeran couldn’t afford his education due to financial constraints. Her husband operates a lathe machine and repairs tools and iron items. He is expert in his work and earns a good profit every month from his work. Ameeran has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy another lathe machine, which will help him expand his business by involving his younger son in his business. Ameeran is hopeful that a loan will help her husband make more income and improve the living standard of her family.

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

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.
