Suriya's Group
In this Group: Suriya, Saima, Gulzaran, Shamshad
I am Suriya S. from Chichawatni, a small city in Pakistan. I am married with two daughters and two sons. I hope to borrow a loan from Kiva to expand my family's shoe business. This expansion will help us generate higher profits in the high wedding season which fast approaching.

I would like to borrow for a group of women including Gulzaran and Shamshad and Saima, who will invest their share of the loan to the family’s shop in order to improve and expand the shoe 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.
