Faustina's Group
In this Group: Faustina, Hanah, Patrick
43-year-old Faustina is the leader of this group. The rest are Hanah and Patrick. She has no children, and she is married. She makes a living by selling provisions (e.g., milk, Milo, sugar, rice, bread) in a small store near her community.

She is requesting a loan of GHS 2,000. She will use her part of the group's loan to buy more provisions, in order to satisfy the demand from her customers. They buy from her, because she sells affordable items. Her dream is to be able to build her own house, on a small plot of land she inherited from her parents. She hopes that, with your help, she will be able to get ahead in her business.

The group members need a total amount of GHS 4,600, to buy enough and satisfy their customers.

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.
