He buys animals from the animal market, raises them up and sells them to his customers to earn an income. He started this business six years ago and in this short time period, he has obtained a good number of customers.

Her husband operates a tea stall in the market, where he sells different flavor teas like green, black and milk tea. He is known among his clients for the good taste of his tea.

Additional Information

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.
