Nagma's Group
In this Group: Nagma, Farzana
Nagma belongs to a poor family, living with her spouse in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She does not have any offspring to support her in old age. Her husband is a blacksmith. He manufactures iron accessories for doors and windows in houses. He has been providing door to door services to weld the broken accessories.

A few days ago, his welding plant became out of order due to a fluctuation in electricity, and he needs to purchase a new one. This is the only source of income. He is unable to generate income in the absence of a welding plant. He wants to buy a new welding plant but he does not have enough money due to a lot of household expenses.

Therefore, Nagma requested a loan from BRAC, an active field partner of Kiva, so that her husband can buy a welding plant for manufacturing. She thanks Kiva and their field partner, BRAC Pakistan.

This is a Group Loan

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.
