The loan will be used to benefit the micro-companies in the group of the Untouchables Communal Bank which has been in existence for a year. This is Josefa's first time in this group, after receiving the invitation from a friend who is a member of the group which is in its second cycle.

This type of work enables her to earn money to support her family financially as she lives in a common-law marriage and has three children.

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.
