Vida, who is in 33 years, is married with two children who are in school. She is doing fine with her family. For six years now, Vida has been managing a small grocery store where she sells fruit drinks, coca-cola, biscuits and distilled bottled water. She works from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a very good profit per month.
This will be her fifth loan request from ID-Ghana. She will use the loan to restock her shop with more fruit drinks, coca-cola, biscuits and distilled bottled water and sell to her customers. Vida dreams that one day she will be able to open a big wholesale shop selling groceries.
Vida is requesting a loan together with Richlove.

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.
