Jameela is married. Her husband is a motor mechanic and known as an expert in his field of work. People trust his repair services and come from different areas to get their motorcycle repaired. Jameela is the mother of five children. Her two elder children are in college and the others are studying in a local school. Jameela is very supportive and sews clothes for her neighborhood clients to afford the education expenses of her children.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her own business. With the loan, she will buy a new sewing machine because her current machine is creating problems and doesn’t produce quality work. She is confident that after buying a new sewing machine, she will be able to complete her clients' orders on time and earn more profit.

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.
