Blessing Children Group
In this Group: Alfred, Samuel, Decontee, Agatha, Isaiah
Alfred W., who is holding the sign, is the leader of a group of five borrowers called Blessing Children. He is 52 years old, divorced, and has two children, 18 and 23 years old. He was able to attend school only through 7th grade due to financial difficulties. He also cares for three siblings. All of the children are attending school.

For four years, he has been selling creme, soap, hair grease, perfume etc. in West point Market, Monrovia, Liberia. He plans to use his 6,000 LRD portion of this 30,000 LRD group loan to buy more creme, soap, hair grease, perfume etc. to sell. His dream is to expand his business.

In the photo that accompanies this profile, Isaiah is inset at lower right because he was absent during the group 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.
