Hameeda is 32 years old and is a very hardworking lady. She is a responsible mother of four children.

She is an efficient and excellent tailor by profession. She provides tailoring services in her community. Her customers always appreciate her work. Her tailoring machine stopped working recently, so she can't continue her business. Therefore, as a member of a 7-person lending group, she has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase a new tailoring machine. It will help her to continue her business as her income plays a vital role in the family's net income.

She is thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.

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.
