Mithaq's Group
In this Group: Mithaq, Hamida, Bushra
Mithaq is a member of this group from Iraq. Mithaq is a forty-four-year-old widowed woman. She has two children. After her husband's death, she had a difficult time supporting her family. Mithaq has a beauty salon that provides hair styling, cuts and coloring, face massages, make-up and beauty care. The income from the salon is used to support her family.

When she heard about Izdiharona's qard hassan product (without interest) for widowed women, Mithaq took a loan to buy an air conditioner and chair. She is aiming to increase business and change her salon to a beauty center.

The story of Mithaq and her business is just one of the many examples of Izdiharona for economic development's clients.

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.
