Jamila is a housewife, staying at home and doing her household responsibilities. She is very active and performs her tasks very well. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband who wants to buy a new cart because his current cart has become old and needs a replacement. By purchasing a new cart, he will be able to provide better services to his clients and earn more profits.
Jamila hopes that the loan will be beneficial for her husband and improve the living standard of her family as a result.

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.
