Tahira's Group
In this Group: Tahira, Nazish, Kosar, Samina, Nasreen, Kosar, Shabana
Tahira has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to support her husband who is a rickshaw driver and the only breadwinner in the family. With the loan, he will repair his rickshaw whose engine is creating problems and needs repair and maintenance work urgently otherwise it will seize up. He has been driving his rickshaw for the past 20 years and Tahira is hopeful that this investment will not only help him save his business asset but also help him make more profit by providing better quality transport services to his passengers. Tahira doesn’t have any children and spends most of her time staying at home and doing her household responsibilities.

Note: In the photo, the lady raising her hand 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.
