Hamidaan's Group
In this Group: Hamidaan, Guddu, Fizza, Siddiqan, Chanda, Sughran
Hamidaan has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her embroidery business. With the loan investment, she will buy clothes and embroidery material such as beads, threads, embroidery frames, etc., to improve her services and increase her sales and profits.

She is very creative minded and makes beautiful looking embroidered clothes for her clients, so that’s why her embroidered clothes have very good demand in her community. She is confident that an investment will help her get more established in her business.

Her husband is a mason and builds homes and buildings to order.

Hamidaan has given birth to 4 sons and 2 daughters. All of them are attached to the clothes-sewing profession. Her sons operate their business from the shop in a nearby market while her daughters offer their sewing services by working from home.

Note: In the photo, the lady holding a book (called an Asasah Passbook) is Hamidaan.

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.
