In this Group: Nabawiyah, Hernawati, Erwin, Sri, Dwiana
Nabawiyah is 39 years old and married. She lives with her husband and four children who are still attending school. She and her husband cooperate together to meet their family's expenses. Wanting a better life, Nabawiyah started her business in 2011 selling shoes, socks and accessories on credit. Her business is going well but sometimes she has a problem with people who are late in paying their installment. She is taking her first loan with VisionFund Indonesia to buy more inventory to increase her number of customers. She sells shoes, sandals and accessories door to door around her neighborhood. In the future, she wants to have her own store and have enough savings to send her children to a better education.

Other group members will use their loans to improve their businesses such as washing laundry, running a general store and selling juice.

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.
