Nasreen's Group
In this Group: Nasreen, Mumtaz, Razia, Shamim, Anwer
I am Nasreen R. and I live in Pakpattan, a small town in Pakistan. My loan group and I are borrowing for the second time. Last year, we took out a loan to start a bicycle repair shop. The profit from this business is small but we have managed to repay our loan. This year I plan to start a cosmetics store. I believe this business will do well because there is a high demand for such a store in our community.

The other members of my group are: Anwer B., who wants to expand her sewing business and start a sewing school. Mumtaz B. will buy a rickshaw with the loan. Razia B. needs the loan for her son, who is a tailor. Shamim A. needs the loan to buy pesticides and fertilizers for her farm.

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.
