Mariama K., who is holding the sign, is the leader of a group of five borrowers called Lift the people. She is 41 years old, married and has two children who range from 14 to 20 years old. She also cares for two siblings.

She was only able to attend school through 10th grade due to lack of financial support.

For 15 years, she has been operating a beauty salon in Peter Town, Harbel, outside of Monrovia, Liberia.

She plans to use her 7,000 LRD portion of this 25,000 LRD group loan to buy more hair dressing materials like shampoo, hair rollers, and a hair dryer, etc. She describes herself as a kind woman.

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

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.
