Al Ahibaa Group
In this Group: Saydeh, Nelly, Rania
Saydeh is the featured borrower of A Ahibaa group. She joined the other group members to acquire a loan from Kiva’s partner Al Majmoua because they have always been neighbors and friends. They want to develop their careers and work hard to invest their loan in a well managed way.

Saydeh is a 60-year-old divorced mother of five children. She works hard to provide them with a good standard of living. She has been a tutor at her house for two years, and she puts a lot of effort into developing her business.

Her loan will purchase a new blackboard, chalk, markers and flip charts which will make teaching more exciting and interactive for her students.

She hopes that one day she can establish a tutoring center outside her house and accept more students. Saydeh is the lady sitting in the middle wearing eyeglasses. As for the other members, Nelly is the first from the right with red robe, and Rania is the first from the left with black jacket.

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.
