Her husband is an expert in furniture polishing. He is very hard worker who operates his business from a nearby market.
Munawar has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for the further expansion of her embroidery business. With the loan, she will buy embroidery material such as beads, threads, and embroidery frames in bulk quantities that will enable her to increase her profits by offering better quality work to her clients. Having operated her business for many years, this experienced entrepreneur is confident that the loan investment will be a productive one for her.

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.
