In this Group: Elizabeth , Regina , Clarita , Almary
Elizabeth is the featured borrower of Star Group. She joined with the other group members to apply for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, because they have been close friends since they arrived in Lebanon to work for their families' livings.

Elizabeth, pictured on the left, is a 45-year-old married woman. She is a mother of four children, for whom she is working hard to provide a good standard of living. She is working as a housekeeper to send her family in the Philippines the necessary money to pay for her children's education, so she can be proud of what they achieve.

Regina, second from the left, is a 34-year-old divorced mother who is sacrificing her whole life to provide her only child with the best living possible.
She also works as a housekeeper and her portion of the loan will be sent to the Philippines to pay for her child's education.

Clarita, pictured on the right, is a 44-year-old married woman and mother of two children. Her other group members encouraged her to apply for this loan for the same reasons they had. Education is very important to provide for her children, and she wants to make sure that they will get it exactly as she aims.

Almary, second from the right, is 31 years old and married with five children. She works as a housekeeper and will pay for her children's needs in the Philippines with the applied-for loan.

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.
