Bernice's Group
In this Group: Bernice, Borkor, Joshua, Henrieta
Bernice's group is made up of four members who have been accessing loans from ID-Ghana since 2010. Their names are Borkor, Bernice, Henrieta and Joshua and they sell goods such as maize (corn), fabrics and other provisions. ID Ghana has been of great service to them since they have been able to grow their small businesses through the credit scheme.

Bernice is a 32-year-old trader who is a single parent with two children. She has five years experience and works from Monday to Saturday selling materials which are used to make ladies and children's dresses. She is constantly working to improve her business capital. This is her third loan with ID-Ghana and she is requesting an amount of 400 Ghana shillings (GHS) to buy more goods for her customers in the community.

The entire group needs a total amount of 1,550 GHS for business expansion and to meet customer demand.

About ID Ghana

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.
