Abena Group
In this Group: Abena, Comfort, Hasina, Fatimatu, Vivian
Abena, Comfort, Hasiah, Aishetu, and Vivian are the members of Abena Group. They sell rice porridge, tomatoes, cereals, cosmetics, and engine oil, respectively. They have been together since 2010.

Abena is a 53-year-old woman who is married to Samuel, a 55-year-old mason. She has been with ID Ghana for the past two years and is doing very well with her business.

She has been doing this business for three years now. She works from Monday through Saturday. She is thankful for ID Ghana’s training on savings, otherwise she would not have made it this far.

This is Abena's fourth loan and she needs GHS 800 to buy more rice, sugar, and milk to prepare rice porridge to sell to her customers.

All five partners need a total amount of GHS 4,100 to buy more goods to sell to their customers in the community.

About ID Ghana

ID Ghana is a microfinance NGO that provides financial and social services to underserved urban communities in Accra.

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.
