Fadwa is a 34-year-old married mother of three children. Two years ago she started working in selling beauty cosmetics from her house to help her husband in covering their family's increasing needs.
Fadwa is acquiring a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to start a new additional business to increase her family's income and develop their living. She will open a small restaurant as an additional income business. She will ask her husband to help her in running this business since he has wide experience in this domain.

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.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
