For a year, she has been selling charcoal and oil in the ELWA Community outside of Monrovia, Liberia. She describes herself as a God-fearing woman. She says customers get attracted to her business because she she sells good oil and charcoal.

She plans to use her 6,000 LRD portion of this 30,000 LRD group loan to buy more charcoal and oil.

Her goal is to grow her business, build a shop and to be able to help other members of her family.

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.
