Bnar's Group's story

Bnar is a 27-year-old young Iraqi wife. Together with her husband, she is building the foundations for a nice family, and has been working as a seamstress and tailor for the past 6 years.

In the past, Bnar successfully applied, received and repaid a loan from Relief International - Microfinance Iraq, which she used to purchase a new sewing machine, a small furniture item to improve her work area, and fabric.

Now, Bnar has taken a new loan to further improve her work opportunities. She would like to purchase an overlock sewing machine as well as some additional nice quality fabrics and raw materials to provide a better service for her customers.

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 based 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: Bnar , Asmat , Mhabat
