Martha is a 38-year-old trader. She is a single parent with one child. She has been with ID Ghana for the past two years and is doing very well, both with her business and her family.
Martha has been selling fruits and vegetables for five years. She sells from Monday to Saturday. She opted for this business because she dropped out of school, due to lack of funds. But, with her introduction to ID Ghana, she is now doing very well in life.
This is Martha's third loan. She needs 500 GHS to buy more fruit and jewelry to sell to her customers. Combined, the partners need 950 GHS to buy more goods to sell to their customers in the community.

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.
