Ghina Al Marej Group
In this Group: Ghadir , Nadia , Manal
Ghadir is the featured borrower of the Ghina Al Marej Group. She got along with the other group members, holding hands together and acquiring a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua so they can fulfill their needs.
Ghadir is a 31-year-old married mother of four children. Six months ago, she started working at her house, selling clothes and beauty products, to support her husband in covering their increasing needs. She and her husband, who works as a bus driver, are devoted to the improvement of their family’s living conditions. Their combined incomes aren’t enough to cover their children's increasing needs. For this reason, her acquired loan will be invested in buying newly released spring and summer collections of clothing that will attract her customers’ attention and increase their income.
Ghadir hopes to expand her business in the future and move to a bigger shop. She is the first lady from the left with a green veil covering her hair. As for the other group members, Nadia is the lady at the center, and Manal is the first from the right.

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.
