Shaiymbubu's Group
In this Group: Shaiymbubu, Begaiym, Tolonbek, Nurgul
Shaiymbubu is the leader of this group. She is 58 and, unfortunately, she is a widow. She has raised two daughters and a son; the first daughter works as a confectioner, the second daughter is a teacher and the son is a constructor. In order to earn money to meet daily needs, Shaiymbubu Kyrgyz sews national carpets, cloth and dressmaking supplies. She started this activity 10 years ago with an initial investment of 1,000 soms, and, at the moment, her monthly profit from this activity is 5,000 soms. This profit made her able to save money for purchasing an apartment in Balykchi for her daughter.

Shaiymbubu applied for the loan because she needs financial funds to purchase raw materials, which are needed for sewing. In the future, with the profits gained from the business, she wants to save money to purchase a vehicle for her son.

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.
