Look Up To God Group
In this Group: Solomon , John , Victoria , Mamie , Benjamin
Look Up To God is a group of 5 borrowers led by Solomon G., 37 years old and a 10th grade drop-out due to lack of support. He is married with 5 children aged 6-16 years old and also cares for 2 siblings.

Solomon lives and work on Gurley Street, East of downtown Monrovia, Liberia. Gurley Street is known to be a very rough street, where local night clubs, motels and liquor shops are located, therefore most parents in that community don’t care for their children well, which has a negative impact on their lives.

Solomon’s business is buying used clothing bales wholesale and selling them retail to the residents of Gurley Street. He started this business with a small amount of cash but with courage and seriousness, he is making his business move forward. Solomon has been running this business for 10 years and this business has been putting food on the table for him and his family for the past years.

Solomon’s good human relations with his customers have allowed his business to reach this far. He needs this loan to purchase more used clothing bales wholesale to grow this business into a bigger one. His goal is to own a bigger shop and expand his business and he also dreams of taking good care of his family and giving them good living conditions and medical care so as to have long lives.

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.
