Parveen is a talented lady who operates a sewing and embroidery business. She works out of her home, receiving orders from her relatives and clients from the local neighborhood to generate income for her family. She has been in business for over six years. She loves doing her sewing work and, because her work is of very good quality, she never receives any complaints from her clients.

She also likes to do embroidery work. She does embroidery on clothing and gives the clothes a new look. She keeps herself up to date on the latest trends in fashion, which helps her understand her clients’ needs.

Her husband is a painter and paints both walls and buildings on contract. They both contribute to the family financially from their earnings.

The new machine will enable her complete more orders from her clients in a timely fashion, allowing her to increase her income. She is very confident about the further growth of her embroidery business.

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.
