Amna's Group
In this Group: Amna, Iram, Zarina, Perveen, Nayyer Sultana
Amna has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for her sewing business. With the loan investment she will buy a new sewing machine that will allow her to complete her client orders on time and increase her income. Her current sewing machine has grown old and she is unable to manage her work properly. She is confident that by purchasing a new sewing machine she will be able to run her business better.

Amna’s husband operates a clothes selling business. He purchases clothes from a wholesale market in bulk quantity and sells through his shop at very reasonable rates.

Amna has given birth to 3 sons and 2 daughters. Only her elder daughter could complete her education. Amna is very hopeful about her family's better financial future as a result of her business improvement.

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

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.
