In this Group: Felicia, Halidu, Akua, Adwoa, Rebeca, Afia, Sarah, Gordon, Beatrice, Ophelia, Alberta
Felicia is 32 years old and married. She is the mother of two children, both currently in school. She operates a drinking spot where she sells beverages such as canned and bottled soft drinks. She has built a wooden kiosk from which she sells her drinks. She is an achiever and her focus is to save enough to help her business expand and to provide her children with quality education. However, she worries that she will not have adequate funds to realize that dream.

She is been running her establishment for three years now. She is humbly requesting your help in the form of a loan that she will use to make her dream come true. With the loan, she wants to purchase an increased stock of assorted drinks from the wholesalers to restock her shop. Her goal is to gain more resources with which to take care of the family.

Felicia is the leader of a trust bank group called ‘Kae Yesu,’ which means 'Remember Jesus.' She is the one sitting in the middle in the group photograph. Most of the members of this group are petty traders, food vendors, and farmers. In this group, members guarantee for one another as social collateral to access the loan and support each other in repaying the loan.

Additional Information

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.
