Beautiful Flowers Group
Mabel is a member of the group and her primary economic success has been in the sales of sandals and fruits like pineapple, pawpaw (papaya), grapes, and bananas. She runs a shop where she sells sandals and fruits, from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., at her residence. She buys items from the market and supplies part to her punctual customers and sells part to the nearby customers. It has been 10 years since she began this business, and it is going very well for her, thanks to the effort she puts into her work and the support she received from ID-Ghana through Kiva. At this time, Mabel is in need of a loan of 1,000 Ghana cedis (GHS) to buy enough fruits and sandals to supply to customers. With Christmas approaching, customers are demanding for childrens' sandals for the celebration.
The members as a whole are thankful for the opportunity that has been offered and promise to make payments of each of their different loans on schedule as arranged. The group needs a total amount of 9,800 GHS to improve their businesses.

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.
