Remember Me #1 Group
In this Group: Mamakor , Armah , Mattu , Mali , Foday
Remember Me #1 is a group of 5 borrowers, led by Mamakor F., living in Kolahu, Lofa County, Liberia. Mamakor is 31, married, and has two children, ages 5 to 8; both are in school. Mamaker also cares for 2 children orphaned in the war. Mamakor was unable to attend school although she enjoyed it, because the cultural norm was for girls to rely on their husbands to provide, and therefore school was considered unnecessary. She lives in remote Kolahu city in rural Lofa county, the breadbasket of Liberia.

Mamakor’s business is retail clothing, including slippers, shirts, pants, etc which she buys wholesale from nearby Guinea and sells in a temporary market stall alongside approximately 100 other vendors of various trades. She has run her business for 6 years and is successful because her customers like her personality and work ethic. She’s taking the loan to increase her inventory of slippers and pants, which sell well in the rainy season. Her dream is to grow her business so she can one day have the biggest table in the market. With the profits from her business Mamakor dreams of building her own house.

Additional Information

Note on LEAP:

During routine partner monitoring, Kiva learned that LEAP's delinquency data may be understated due to technical problems with their reporting software. Because this report is key to our analysis of the risk of this partner, delinquency or default rates on loans to this partner may be higher than we expect. For further details, see LEAP’s partner page on Kiva.

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.
