In this Group: Zalloukh, Faten, Samira, Jihan
Zalloukh is a 25-year-old married mother of three children. She is the featured borrower of “Al Waed Al Sadek” group. She got together with the other group members to acquire a loan from Kiva’s field partner Al Majmoua because they have always been best friends since they left their hometown in Syria after the existing war started. They are all working hard to develop their living and their acquired loan will be invested in a well-managed way to cover their needs.

Her husband’s income isn’t enough to cover their family’s needs and that’s why she started a year ago providing cleaning services to help cover their family’s increasing needs. Her acquired loan will be invested in buying a small piece of land, on which she will invest in a new business. She hopes to go back to Syria one day and hopes soon they can have peace.

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.
