Tabassum is a leader of this group. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan, and she is a mother of two children.

Her husband is an educated person; he has been running a primary school for the past few years. As the enrollment is increasing, he needs to purchase furniture for the school. However due to lack of financing, he finds it difficult.

Tabassum has asked for a Kiva loan from Kiva's field partner, BRAC Pakistan, to help her husband. He would purchase chairs and desks for his school with the loan.

Tabussum hopes that the loan will be helpful for her husband's school; she prays for the success of her husband's business.

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.
