Blessing Group
In this Group: Elizabeth, Hawa, Esther, Cecelia, Hawa
Elizabeth T., who is holding the sign, is the leader of this group of five borrowers called “Blessing”. She is 51 years old, is widowed, and has five children who range from 10 to 34 years old. She was only able to attend school through 8th grade due to poverty.

For ten years, Elizabeth has been selling rice, cooking oil, sugar, flour and pepper in Chicken Soup Market on the outskirts of Monrovia, Liberia.

Elizabeth plans to use her 25,000 Liberian dollar portion of this 65,000 Liberian dollar group loan to buy more bags of rice, cooking oil, sugar and flour. She describes herself as a determined woman.

Elizabeth’s dream is to improve her business, build a house, and continue to educate her children.

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.
