I Will Do My Best Group
In this Group: Hawa, Tenneh, Saybah, Sonnie, Kormassa
Hawa B. is the leader of a group of five borrowers called I Will Do My Best. She is 20 years old, married, and has a 5-year-old child. She also cares for two siblings. She did not have the opportunity to go to school.

For four years, Hawa has been selling lappas (traditional clothing) on a table at the Redlight Market in Paynesville, Liberia. She serves her customers in a nice manner, which keeps them returning. But she faces problems with insufficient funds to operate her business.

Hawa started selling from profits generated from a friend’s business when helping her friend to sell. She plans to use her 6,000 Liberian dollar portion of this 30,000 Liberian dollar group loan to buy more lappas for sale. Her goal is to build a bigger shop that can sustain her family in the future.

Hawa describes herself as a good Liberian business woman selling in the Redlight 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.
