Jinan is the featured borrower of Dana group. She got together with the other group members to acquire a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, in order to cover their needs and satisfy their desires. Jinan and the other group members decided to put their hands together to acquire this loan, because they have always been neighbors and friends who trust each other. Jinan is a 41-year-old married mother of three children, who has been working as a makeup artist from her house for thirteen years. She is very talented in her field and well known in her region.

Jinan is acquiring a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to buy newly released makeup items, especially for the coming Christmas and winter season, and to invest part of the loan into buying necessary winter needs for her family.

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.
