Zuura's Group
In this Group: Zuura , Aisalkyn, Kerez, Venera, Tokto
Zuura J., 59, is a leader of this group. Her whole life was spent in a hometown of Balykchy, which is translated from Kyrgyz language as “fisherman”. The town used to be a major industrial and transportation center, but most of its activities stopped after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Zuura is one of 40 000 people, who stayed in a town regardless of the difficult economic times. Zuura pursued a major in medicine and has been curing people for a major portion of her life. She works in a diagnostic center of a local hospital, and gets paid 2,000 soms monthly, and receives additional help of 2,700 from social fund. Zuura lives with her husband and a 13 year old son. She applied for this loan to help push forward her husband’s business. It was started six years ago, when her husband invested all his return from driving a cab in acquisition of raw material for his new business. Zuura’s husband is very handy and makes various types of furniture, household appliances and trailers for trucks. Business is well-advanced now and the family already opened its own workshop. It made her husband’s work more comfortable and effective. The proceeded return of 8 000 soms unfortunately is not enough to accomplish all orders that he is receiving now. Therefore Zuura asks for a loan in order to purchase raw materials such as ironmongery, pipes, plywood and planks.

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.
