Blue-S Group
In this Group: Dorina , Aylin , Evangelyn , Percy, Angelie
Blue-S is a group composed of five Filipino ladies who joined hands in order to help each other out, thus seeking to acquire a group loan from Al Majmoua. Dorina is the group leader and featured member of Blue-S, standing the second from the left in the picture, wearing an orange jacket. She is a 62-year-old widow and mother of two children who live in the Philippines; she works as a housekeeper. Her situation as the only financial resource of the family forced her to leave her children, because it was the only way for her to be able to provide for their necessary expenses. Her highest degree at school is elementary, which was an obstacle for her to be able to work in any other domain. The Al Majmoua loan would enable her to cover the enrollment fees of her children's universities.

Aylin is a 49-year-old married mother of three children, who works as a housekeeper for a Lebanese family. She is the lady standing second to the right in the picture. Her husband and children live back in the Philippines. She wished to acquire the Al Majmoua loan in order to help her husband with the enrollment fees of their children.

Evangelyn is a 29-year-old single lady, standing on the far right of the picture and working as a housekeeper for a Lebanese family. She joined the Blue-S group in order to help her family back in the Philippines with the high university tuition fees of her niece.

Percy is a 39-year-old married mother, standing in the middle of the picture. She works in a retail store and sells clothes. Her husband and two children are Lebanese. Her husband is a low-income employee. She needs the Al Majmoua loan in order to help with the heavy expenses of her family.

Angelie is a 40-year-old single lady, standing on the far left of the picture. She works as a housekeeper for a Lebanese family as well. Just like Evangelyn, Angelie wished to acquire the Al Majmoua loan in order to help her family back in the Philippines with the university tuition fees of her niece.

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.
