* not pictured
This women's group is found in the outskirts of the city and consists of women who formed it with an aim of eradicating poverty from their families. Juliet, a 27-year-old is a single mother of a 4-year-old who has just started kindergarten.She sells electricals--a business she started a year ago with the help of funds from a friend and later additional funds from Ugafode Micro-finance Ltd. Juliet had dropped out of school four years back because her peasant parents could not afford money for her tuition.

With her little savings from the business Juliet bought a small piece of land on which she now wants to begin construction with the loan funds she is acquiring. She hopes that when the house is complete, she will be free from the burden of renting and will use that money to pay tuition for her son.

Juliet is faced with challenges of insecurity because thieves steal her goods in the night at times. However she is persistent and confident that all this will change and her business will grow to self-sustainability.The ninth person is the group chairperson who is not taking out a loan this cycle but signed a waiver form.

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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
