For six years now, Nasra has been running different activities: a shop selling dry food, selling charcoal and also offering tap-water service. She is doing fine with her businesses. Nasra works from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily and is able to make a good profit per month.
This is her sixth loan request. She will use it to buy more foods and charcoal to resell. With the previous loans, she bought more shop foods, charcoal, a fridge and one tank for water storage. She used her profit to cover school fees and home expenses and to buy a house fridge. Nasra dreams that one day will be able to own a hardware store and build a house.
She will share this loan with her loan group, "Compressor," which consist of 13 members. The members of this group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

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.
