She is joined in her loan group by the following individuals: (1) Shazia baji, who seeks a loan to expand her children's garment business; (2) Allah Rakhi baji, who requests a loan to buy masonry tools for her husband’s business; (3) Ameeran baji, who asks for a loan to buy a donkey cart; and (4) Razia baji, who wants a loan for her food business.
This is a group loan. As such, the loan proceeds will be distributed among the group members, each of whom will invest in her own business. Further, the members mutually guarantee each other's loans; therefore, if one member does not repay her loan, the other members are responsible for the arrears.
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.
