A loan of $3,600 helped a member to improve her work area.


Zhyan's Group's story

Zhyan is a 43-year-old Iraqi woman, a wife and a mother of four children. Working from her home, she has been using her sewing skills for the past 5 years to participate in financially supporting her family.

In the past, Zhyan – as member of this same group - successfully applied for, received and repaid a loan from Relief International Microfinance Iraq which she used to buy a small generator allowing her to work even during the hours the city lacks power.

Now, Zhyan took a loan from Relief International Microfinance Iraq to improve her 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: Zhyan, Benaee, Rezan
