Erkingul's Group
In this Group: Erkingul , Ulan, Kunduz
Erkingul J., 45, is a leader of this group. As Kyrgyzstan is in the heart of the historically know Silk Road, the master of eastern trade techniques are still left in Kyrgyz blood. Erkingul is a resident of the town of Tup and has three children. Her oldest son is employed in neighboring Kazakhstan, while the other two children are busy with their studies.

In 2006 Erkingul took a loan in a local bank and opened her own retail shop. The secret of her success is that she is very sensitive to customers’ tastes and expectations. She almost never has leftover goods. Her monthly profit has reached 10 000 soms. Erkingul applied for this loan because she needs to stock her retail shop with large amounts of goods such as beverages. In the future she hopes to increase the goods circulation to 200 000 soms and to assist her son in purchasing a house.

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.
