Dd Gorgeous Group
In this Group: Judy Ann, Bella , Vilma , Lerio
DD Gorgeous is a group comprising four Filipino ladies who work as housekeepers for Lebanese families. Judy Ann is the leader and featured member of this group. She is a 45-year-old widowed mother of two children; she is standing on the far right in the picture. She barely earns enough to provide for herself. Her children live in the Philippines with her retired parents, which means that she is the only financial resource of the entire family. This situation has motivated her to join the group and contact Al Majmoua in order to acquire a group loan to pay for the schooling expenses of her children.

Bella is a 44-year-old widowed mother of one child; she is standing on the far left in the picture. She is the only financial provider for her family and thus is really in need of this group loan. It would also help her to pay for the schooling/tuition expenses of her children.

Vilma is a 39-year-old married mother of two children; she is standing in the second from the right position in the picture. Her husband is currently unemployed, which renders her the only financial resource of the family. She needs the Al Majmoua loan in order to help her husband pay for the schooling expenses of their children.

Lerio is a 40-year-old single lady; she is standing in the second to the left position in the picture. She needs the Al Majmoua loan in order to send money to her family in the Philippines.

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.
