In this Group: Surriya, Mumtaz Bibi, Zubaida Bibi, Najma Parveen, Asia Bibi
Surriya is a housewife and the mother of four children. All of them are enrolled in a local school and are getting their education. Surriya stays at home and takes care of her household responsibilities. She is a very active and cooperative person by nature.

Her husband operates a grocery store in the community. Through his store, he sells everyday household items like spices, sugar, rice, lentils, etc. for reasonable rates to his customers.

Surriya has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, for her husband’s business. With this loan, her husband will buy groceries in bulk to be able to sell in his store. This will help him make better sales and earn better profits.

Surriya hopes that the investment will be a productive one for her husband and will improve the standard of living for her family as a result.

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.
