United Sisters Group
In this Group: Hawa, Miattaja, Virginia, Siatta, Asatu
"United Sisters" is a group of 5 borrowers led by Hawa S.. Hawa is 32 years old and a 5th-grade drop-out due to poverty. She’s also a single mother of 4 children, ages 5 - 14 years, in kindergarten through 7th grade. Hawa lives in the Airfield Lakpazee area, a community that is a little far from downtown Monrovia, Liberia, but is a poor community. Many people leave rural areas like Lofa County to settle there.

Hawa sells dried meat and fish. She started this business by going out of town to the rural areas to buy her products, and then bringing them to town to sell in the Lakpazee Market to residents of Lakpazee. She has been running this business for 13 years and wants to improve it. Therefore, she need a loan to purchase more dried meat and fish so she can make more profit and make her dream of success come to pass.

Hawa always dries her fish and meat the perfect way to attract customers, because there are so many competing vendors in the Lakpazee Market.

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.
