Tanveer Shehzadi's Group
In this Group: Tanveer Shehzadi, Safia
Tanveer Shehzadi’s husband has been driving a four-stroke auto rickshaw. Its engine is less powerful than the two-stroke rickshaws. He belongs to an ultra poor family and has been feeding his children. Now his children are growing old and their needs increasing as well.

Tanveer Shehzadi has been saving for many days to buy a two-stroke auto rickshaw for her husband but at the time of purchase, she was short of money. Therefore, Tanveer Shehzadi has requested a loan for her husband so that he can buy a new two-stroke auto rickshaw with the help of her savings. Tanveer Shehzadi is a 40-year-old woman living with her four children and spouse in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

Tanveer Shehzadi hopes that now her husband will be able to generate more income because he can easily pick up and drop off the passengers at their destination on time. She is very happy after taking this loan and thanks Kiva and 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.
