Amanfrom Ebenezer Group
In this Group: Florence , Safuratu, Comfort, Juliet, Dora, Mariama, Mavis
Florence is 50 years old. She is married and the mother of four children. All her children are currently independent. She is a very hard working woman and works hard to support her business and in taking care of herself. She trades in flip-flops, Ghana-made slippers, shoes and sandals for both sexes. She takes delivery of stock from Accra in Ghana. She purchases them in different sizes, colors and designs so that her customers can make their choice. She mostly sells them through hawking, which is house to house selling, and sometimes in the community market. She has no regret with this business because it has given her lots of experience in marketing and sales. In spite of her age, she is able to sell more within a day. She requests your loan assistance to buy stock in bulk. She would be grateful for your support as we approach the Christmas festivities.

She is the leader of a trust bank group called ‘Amanfrom Ebenezer’. She is the one standing in the middle in the group photograph. Most of the members of this group are petty traders, food vendors and farmers, respectively. In this group, members guarantee for one another as social collateral to access the loan and peer pressure to repay 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.
