Al Zahra Al Baydaa Group
Fatima is the first lady lady from the right; she is a 55-year-old married mother of six children. She has been working 23 years selling clothes, 15 years in the housekeeping business, and 12 years raising cows. She runs these three businesses at the same time to make sure that she can provide her family with the necessary living needs. Since their needs are increasing, she has to run more than one business to cover their needs.
Fatima's is willing to keep on increasing her family's income, so her acquired loan will be invested in buying a cow which will help her a lot in her business development and increase her income to make sure that all of her family's needs are met.
As for the other group members, Hamida is at the center, and Hiba is the first from the left.

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.
