Jameela's Group
In this Group: Jameela , Rukhsana
Jameela is 48 and the mother of four children. She is taking a loan for her elder son who wants to buy leather jackets to sell in the winter season. Her elder son has already owned a garment shop for many years. As we know, the winter season is going to start in Pakistan and the cost of leather jackets will double. He wants to buy leather jackets very soon at cheap rates so that he could earn a maximum profit in the winter season.

Therefore, Jameela requested a loan for her son from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan. Jameela hopes that her son will utilize this amount in positive ways. She says thanks to Kiva and to its field partner BRAC Pakistan.

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.
