Sajida has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, to expand her husband’s candy business. He sells candies and chocolates to different general stores.

With the loan, he will buy candies and chocolates in bulk to improve his sales and client base.

Sajida has two sons and a daughter. All of her children are enrolled in a local school.

Sajida is also involved in a sewing business. She learned this art from her mother before marriage and now she earns reasonably good profits from her skills.

She is very confident that an investment will help her husband improve his business which will result in her family’s having a better financial life.

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.
