Mukhtiar, pictured raising her hand, is a 35-year-old hardworking woman living with her husband and five children in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Her husband is deceased, and its very difficult for her to manage the household expenses. She is running a small general store, and she needs additional capital for the growth of her business.

As a member of seven-person group, Mukhtiar has requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan. She wants to buy a variety of goods and grocery items like rice, sugar, cereals, and milk and introduce some new products in her general store. She wants to spend the profit on the education of her children, and she is looking forward to a better future for them. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan for their support.

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.
