In this Group: Aisha, Catherine, Madina, Esther, Juliet, Naume, Aisha
32-year-old K. Aisha began her now five-year-old tailoring business with savings from her fish selling business. She operates from her home and her customer base cuts across from community members to schools, interested in well-sewn uniforms.

In her business, what has helped her find a niche in the market is the top rate quality of most of her designs. With the passage of time, she has seen her profits go up in the ascendant. It’s not only her splendid designs that have been her winning calling card. She is also a high spirited and hard working lady who always creates a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere around her clients.

Her stable marital status has also in many respects contributed to the stability and growth of her business. Knowing that family is the foundation of society, she has laid special emphasis on the education of her three children. With a profit average of $31 per week, she has been able to make her ends meet.

Aisha also sells lake shells as an additional source of income. She is now taking a long view with plans of opening up a retail shop and giving her children the best education possible in the future. With this loan she is fully focused on purchasing more clothing textiles and also more shells.

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.
