Madame Sarakh, the leader of the group, is 47. She is married and the mother of two children, but is also raising four young children whose mother is deceased.

Her principal activity is selling vegetables and fish. At the same time she sells cooked meat together with her husband. In the photo, she is standing on the right, dressed in a blue sari.

She buys vegetables, fish, sheep and goats at the weekly market in the village and resells her goods in the same place. She has 20 years' experience in this field. Her loan will allow her to buy sheep and goats to slaughter and cook,especially on Wednesdays, the weekly market day, so as to satisfy the demand of customers who come from all over.

She hopes that she can use her profit to grow her savings and improve living conditions for her family in terms of food, school fees, and health-related issues.

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.
