Her grocery store is located in a competitive environment and she needs to increase the products to manage the customer base and to improve sales. For this reason she has requested a loan of Pak Rs. 15,000.
She has five other ladies in her loan group. Muniran baji wants a loan to buy groceries for her grocery shop. Imtiaz baji, Haleema baji, Noor bhari baji and ZIkran baji each want a loan to buy fertilizer to sell.
This is a group loan. The loan funds will be distributed among the group members, each of whom will invest in her own business. The members mutually guarantee one another's loans. If one member does not repay, the other members are responsible.
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.
