Family Light Group
In this Group: Siah, Jerry, Moses, Kumba, Sonnah
Siah M., who is holding the sign, is the leader of this group of five borrowers called Family Light. She is 39 years old, married, and has two children who are 10 and 15 years old. She was able to attend school only through seventh grade due to financial constraints. Siah describes herself as a determined woman whose goals are to improve her business and continue to educate her children.

For 10 years, Siah has been selling building materials such as paint, door locks, cutlasses, nails, shovels and hammers in New Georgia Community outside of Monrovia, Liberia. She plans to use her 25000 Liberian dollars (LRD) portion of this 92000 LRD group loan to buy more hardware supplies.

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.
