Safina T. is a very enterprising business lady with a first business of brick laying. This has been beneficial to her family and general income, as well as reviving her other business of making samosas. She makes samosas with rice and peas, uses flour, onions and salt to spice them up, and fries them to supply to shops and schools around Naalya. She has 6 children who are all in school. She has been in her lending group for a long time. She will use her loan to buy more flour, onions, and other ingredients for making the samosas, as well as pay school fees for her children.

Additional Information

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.
