In this Group: Amina, Aisha, Zaituni, Jenifer, Stela
Amina is 24 years old and is a married woman with 2 children, ages 7 and 4 years old. She and her husband also take care of two other people, ages 20 and 19 years old. Amina owns a small cafe, a business she started in 2005. Every day, she works from 8am to 11:30pm at her business and can earn a monthly profit of about $52 from her sales.

She now hopes for a loan to buy more food items for her cafe. She will share this loan with her subgroup members Aisha, Zaituni, Jenifer, and Stela, who have businesses dealing in charcoal sales, clothes sales, and grains wholesales.

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.
