Khalida has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan, for her husband. He owns a babies’ cot bedsheet shop in the market. He stitches beautiful and colourful bedsheets for babies’ cots and sells them in the main market. He needs capital to purchase cloth and thread for making bedsheets. However, due to lack of finances, he finds it difficult. Therefore, his wife has asked for a loan to help him, as his shop is the only source of income for his family. This loan amount is very important to continue his work.
Khalida wants to buy a refrigerator for the preservation of food in the summer season with the profit amount. She is feeling very happy and relaxed after taking the loan. She is thankful to all the BRAC Pakistan team and all Kiva lenders.

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.
