More information about this loan

This loan helps Palestinian refugees living in Lebanon, specifically in refugee camps throughout the country. Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon often have poor infrastructure and do not receive the same basic services as the rest of the country. Palestinian refugees have been marginalized by the Lebanese government and society, as they face many restrictions and discrimination in the work, educational, and health fields. By funding this loan, you are helping these marginalized individuals develop their businesses and provide for their families.

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.
