Sobia's Group
In this Group: Sobia, Amina
Sobia , 36, belongs to the middle standard family, and she is passing her life with her spouse and three daughters happily. Her residence is in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

Sobia's husband earns a sufficient amount to easily afford the household expenses and the school fees of his children. He transports all kinds of goods, clothing and food items from one place to another within the city. He enters into a contract, hires a vehicle according to the volume of goods, and delivers them to their destination.

Recently he got a contract to deliver goods to another city, but he does not have the money to hire a vehicle because of the higher fare demanded. Therefore, Sobia is requesting a loan for that purpose. She is very hopeful that Kiva lenders will support her request.

Sobia is very thankful to Kiva and its field partner, 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.
