She has special customers who she calls to come and buy fish, and immediately she gets them. She is really doing great. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She used the profit to pay school fees and cover household expenses. She wants a loan to buy more fish to resell. She dreams of buying her own place for selling her fish and buying another freezer.

Zuhura will share this loan with her loan group "Mapatano 2", which has seven people who will hold eachother accountable for paying back the 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.
