In this Group: Shaheen, Naghma
Shaheen has been saving money for many days to buy a new auto rickshaw for her husband. However, when the time came to purchase the item, money became short. Therefore, she has requested a loan so that he can buy a new rickshaw for her husband's business. She had received a loan in past but she could not buy a rickshaw for her husband due to household expenses. This time, she will successfully buy the new rickshaw with the contribution of her previous savings.

Shaheen is a 29-year-old woman who lives with her six children and spouse in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

She hopes that this time her husband can easily generate sufficient income to cherish his children and promises to pay all the installments on time. She is very happy and grateful after taking this loan. She thanks 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.
