Tavga's Group's story

Tavga is 21 years old, a young Iraqi wife. For the last two years, she has been working from home on an old sewing machine to contribute to her family's income and participate in the creation of her new home and life shared with her husband.

Tavga took a loan from Relief International - Microfinance Iraq to be able to buy a new sewing machine with a table and chair for her home work area.

Relief International - Microfinance Iraq offers "Group loans" for clients unable to provide a guarantor, thereby unable to apply for a loan as an individual. As a group, the members collectively guarantee the loan. Groups consist of 3 to 5 clients and each client is evaluated on his or her repayment capacity. All group members receive the same loan amount as the individual with the lowest repayment capacity in the group.

In this group: Tavga , Shara , Nask
