About Izdiharona for Economic Development

Izdiharona for Economic Development (Izdiharona) is a nonprofit organization in Iraq that provides financial assistance to small and medium enterprises in need of capital so they can develop their businesses and train their staff. Founded in 2008, it currently operates ten branch offices throughout Iraq in the provinces of Baghdad, Babil, Basra, Karbala, Messan, Sulaymaniyah and more. Kiva lenders’ funds are used to provide education, startup, green, and youth loans, as well as interest free loans to the ultra poor and loans that support income generating projects for women.

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.
