She has been with ID Ghana for the past two years and is very happy to be a long-term member of the organization. She has taken out two loans and has fully repaid them both. For her third loan, she is requesting GHC 500 to help her meet her customers' demand.
Together, the two members of this group are requesting a loan amount of GHC 850 in order to buy more goods to sell to their respective customers in and around Teshie.

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.
