Mandakh's Buleg Group
In this Group: Mandakh, Tsetseg-Ulzii, Tegshjargal
Mandakh is a 56-year-old married woman who has two children, who are 23 and 27 years old. Her family lives in their own 'ger', a traditional Mongolian felt tent, which is located in the outer 'ger' district of Ulaanbaatar city, Mongolia.

Mandakh has been supporting her family by operating a felt manufacturing business since 2004. She usually sews felt sandals and souvenirs and sells them at a local indoor market. During the summer time there are many tourists in Mongolia and they are really overjoyed to buy traditional felt souvenirs and sandals.

Mandakh wants to expand her business in order to increase her working capital during the tourist season in Mongolia. So she is requesting a 1,000,000 MNT (Mongolian Tugriks) loan to purchase raw materials to make more products.

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.
