Shazia has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband, who is a vegetable and fruit seller. With the loan investment, he will put fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables in his shop and that will allow him to attract more clients towards his shop and increase his sales and income.

Shazia is a seamstress and sews clothes to financially support her family. She has 6 sons and a daughter. 5 of them are studying while the remaining 2 are not of school-going age. She is very positive in her thinking and confident that the loan will be a productive one for her husband and will improve his income.

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.
