Victoria, Rebecca and Salomey sell smoked fish, Susana sells plantains, Abedey and Lartekaa sell banku, Gifty sells pampers while Regina sells cooked rice. ID Ghana has been of great service to them since they have been able to grow their small businesses through the credit scheme.
Victoria is a 38-year-old fish trader who is married to Akwei, a 42-year-old driver. They have four children. She has 12 years experience. She works 6 days a week (from Monday to Saturday). She is constantly working to improve her business.
This is her 3rd loan with ID-Ghana and she is requesting an amount of GHS 1,000 to buy more fish to sell to her customers in the community.
The entire group needs a total amount of GHS 5,100 for business expansion and to meet customers’ demand.

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.
