Nazira K., 35, is a treasurer of this group of borrowers. A resident of the small coal-mining town of Tashkomur in Southern Kyrgyzstan, she has been involved in livestock breeding for two years. She is a mother of four children and her husband is a coal miner. He sells coal to local consumers and to other regions of the city.
Nazira says the biggest challenge for her is to pay enough attention to livestock breeding while raising four kids. Livestock needs careful treatment the whole day, starting from early in the morning until late in the evening. When the livestock is grown, Nazira sells it and buys new younger ones to raise. This business always has enjoyed high demand because the Kyrgyz people’s main dish is meat.
The business was Nazira’s husband’s initiative, thanks to which the family’s monthly revenue is 10000 soms. This loan is planned for the purchase of 9-10 livestock animals.

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.
