Mira Jalpetekova's Group
In this Group: Mira Jalpetekova, Zyinat, Samara, Semetei, Gulsyina
Mira, 61, leads this group. Like most of her neighbors in the village of Kochkorka, she makes a living raising cattle. In recent years, this work has become harder for her to do because of health issues, so she is grateful to have a 24-year-old son who has taken over the work and is continuing to increase the number of cattle they own. This is important because it’s easier to cover fixed and variable costs with a large herd than a small one. Mira is applying for this loan to buy more cattle and increase her family's income so that her son can buy a car and begin working as a cab driver.

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.
