Siddiqan is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the further expansion of her business. With the loan investment, she will purchase grocery products in bulk quantities, which will allow her to fulfill the needs of her community clients and increase her sales and profits. She is very new to her business, having started it last year. She is confident that a loan will help her become established in her business.
Note: In the photo, the lady holding a book (called the Asasah Passbook) is Siddiqan.
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.
