Ghulam Fatima's Group
G. Fatima has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, for her husband, who operates a dairy business in the community. He will use the loan to buy another buffalo to produce more milk and to sell to many more customers. He started this business 5 years ago and is now getting good at it. G. Fatima is hopeful that by purchasing another buffalo, her husband’s business will expand and he will be able to increase his clients and profit. G. Fatima is a regular lender with Asasah and this is her 2nd loan application. In previous loan years, she established good credit behavior and never missed a meeting.

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.
