Indira Gandhi Group
Tabasum has been running a poultry/chicken farm for the last eight years with the help of her husband, who looks after it. She herself is running a tailoring center in her house with two sewing machines where she takes orders of stitching of ladies garments. Tabasum earns a monthly income of 10,000 INR from the above two businesses, and with this it is very hard to manage both the family and the educational expenses of the children. So Tabasum is planning to expand the chicken farm business to get some extra income. As her farm has a reputation for supplying quality chicken, customers from far and near villages like to deal with her farm.
This is the fourth loan for Tabasum and from this loan she wants to purchase chickens in bulk from the nearest wholesale market to save transportation cost and loss due to rate fluctuation. She is very hopeful that this investment will be helping her. She hopes to give better education to her children and marriage for her elder daughter.
The other three members of this group are Husna Ara, Sukrubari and Jarina, running procurement of seasonal products, photo framing center and general grocery shop, respectively.

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.
