United Sisters Group
In this Group: Miatta, Ciatta, Miama, Musu, Moore
Miatta K. is the leader of a group of five borrowers called United Sisters. She is 46 years old, married, and has five children who range from 9 to 23 years old. She was only able to attend school through 12th grade due to poverty.

For 18 years, she has been operating a mini restaurant in Via Town, Monrovia, Liberia. She sells in a friendly manner, which keeps customers returning. She plans to use her 16,000 Liberian dollar portion of this 44,000 Liberian dollar group loan to buy more rice, oil and pepper.

Her goal is to grow her business and to continue to support her children so that they can have a better future.

In the photo that accompanies this profile, Miatta is the one holding the sign. Moore is in the inset photo because he was not present during the interview.

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.
