Rasoolan's husband has a business selling animals. He purchases sheep and goats at a young age, raises them and sells them to butchers once they become healthy and older. Rasoolan has applied for a loan from KIVA's partner, Asasah, for her husband’s business. He will use the loan to buy sheep and goats in larger numbers for reselling at a profit. He has been operating his business for many years and Rasoolan is confident of his business success after investing this loan.
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.
