She bought a nice aluminum cupboard, a place where she keeps chips after being fried, and a fridge to keep soft drinks. Rukia is doing great and is thankful to everyone who has supported her group. Rukia received increased income, which she used to buy a plot of land and build a house. She covered part of school fees and household expenses. With the loan, Rukia will open a barbershop business. In this new business,Rukia will employ somebody in full time but she will be supervising. She dreams of owning a car and improving her family life.

Rukia will share this loan with her loan group" ROYAL GROUP" which totals four members. The members of the 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.
