Sooner or later almost every one of us begins to think of further life plans. Every individual has his or her own. Education, family, job, hobby — the most common plans of a human being. No matter what country you live in, what race or nationality you belong to, what kind of hobby you like to spend your free time with, you want to live a worthy life. Unfortunately, unstable political and economical situations are not the best circumstances in which to build a worthwhile life. Nevertheless, people by their very nature are trying to improve their way of life.

In order to repay the loan, Maira’s husband will use his pension money and his salary. In the future, both parents want to give their daughters in marriage to good men and organize both of their weddings.

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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
