Friendship Group
In this Group: Kumba, Annie, Rachel, Jackie, Mary
Kumba S., who is holding the sign, is the leader of this group of five borrowers called Friendship. She is 36 years old, single, and has four children whose ages are between 6 and 18 years. She was able to attend school only through 12th grade due to financial difficulty. She also cares for two siblings.

For 15 years, she has been selling drinks (liquor) and water in Redlight Market on the outskirts of Monrovia, Liberia. She plans to use her 8,000 LRD portion of this 40,000 LRD group loan to buy more crates of drinks and sacks of water.

She describes herself as a friendly, very hard-working woman whose goals are to improve her business and 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.
