Afshan's Group
In this Group: Afshan, Sajida
Afshan is a 30-year-old woman residing in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. She is the mother of two sons. Her husband is running a workshop out of the country. Afshan's husband is also the owner of a rickshaw that is driven by a driver who takes a monthly salary for driving the rickshaw. Currently the rickshaw is not working properly, and it requires proper maintenance to run efficiently. Its engine needs to be repaired properly so that it can work without making trouble for this purpose. Afshan's husband does not have enough money.

Therefore Afshan has applied for a Kiva group loan with another member from its field partner BRAC Pakistan. This loan will help her husband with the expenses for the maintenance of his rickshaw to run properly and to provide better transportation services. For this financial assistance, Afshan is very thankful to Kiva and 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.
