Shazia applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for her clothing business. With the loan investment, she will buy clothes in larger quantities and of more variety. This will allow her to attract more clients and increase her sales and profits.

She lives with her brother, who has a mobile repairing business. She did not want to become a burden on her brother, and that is why she started her own business a few years ago, which is now well established. She is very experienced in her business and confident that the loan investment will be productive for her.

Note: In the photo, the lady holding the book called Asasah Passbook is Shazia.

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.
