Jypar has a desire to expand her business and to do that she needs a loan. With half of the loan she wants to buy men’s and women’s hats, and with the other half she wants to purchase children’s Panama hats. She plans to get a container and achieve $1,200 turnover. As her children grow, so do her expenses for their education. Owning and running her own container would let her meet her growing needs.
The other members of the group are Guljamal, Jailobai and Tojihon. Guljamal is 42. She has been selling women’s clothes and has raised six children. Her spouse works as an unskilled laborer. Guljamal needs a loan to make a repair at her house, since summer is the best time to do this.
Jailobai, 38, is married. He is occupied with selling cosmetics, household goods, detergents and women’s hygienic cleansers. Four years ago he obtained a loan and started his business. So far he has bought a house and livestock. Now he needs another loan to buy different brands of detergents.
Tojihon is 29. Together with her husband, she sells men’s clothing, pants and jogging trousers. After nine years of hard work, they were able to buy a house. They want to purchase more items of clothing to attract more customers and eventually increase family income, since they intend to save funds for their sole daughter’s education. But to do that they need to obtain a 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.
