Odinakhon's Group
In this Group: Odinakhon , Sodikjan, Gulhumor, Umidjon
Odinakhon M., 20, is a leader of this group. Despite her young age, she managed to run the business for several years now. She found out about the loan from Kiva and was happy to tell her fellows about it. Odinakhon is single and lives with her parents, brother and a sister-in-law. Her mother is actively involved in agriculture, her father is a construction worker and her sister-in-law is a kindergarten teacher. Odinakhon says she inherited a strong and persistent personality from her mother. At the age of 17 she already knew best techniques for cultivating land and ways to get a rich harvest. At this moment Odinakhon is preparing the small piece of land that her family owns for sowing. She really hopes on good weather this year, because last year’s long winters and late spring destroyed most of her cultivation. The outcomes led to a poor harvest in fall, which raised only small amount of funds. She’s learned her lesson, and this year she will try to be more careful and follow the weather predictions. The history of the land goes far back to a period of fall of the Soviet Union back in 1991. During privatization, the family was given this land, which has become a major source of income for the entire family. This year she plans to sow seeds of cotton. Therefore she gathered her fellows and applied for this loan.

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.
