Yasmeen's Group
In this Group: Yasmeen, Najma, Ghazala, Haneefa, Razia
I am Yasmeen I. from Lahore, second largest metropolis in Pakistan. I am 56, married and a mother of an only daughter who is married. My husband is weak and sick and cannot work whereas I create ready made garments. Since I am the only breadwinner of the family there is a great responsibility on my shoulders. I need a loan to make my business more productive. My group members are: Najma B. and Ghazala B. who both require loans for their embroidered clothes business. Haneefa Begum will invest her share of the loan in her son’s furniture business. Razia B. is borrowing for her son to buy him a rickshaw on installments. I have become their group leader because they are hardworking and in need.

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.
