Nomo is a 37-year-old widowed mother of one child, she works hard as a housekeeper to provide her beloved child with the necessary living needs. This is Nomo's second cycle as a borrower with Al Majmoua, Kiva's field partner. Her previous loan was sent to the Philippines to pay for her child's school fees.

Today, Nomo's acquired loan will be invested for the same purpose, because she believes that education will provide her child with a brighter future.

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.
