Rita's Group
In this Group: Rita, Salomey
The Rita's group is made up of two able women who live in the same area. The representative of the group, Rita, (standing on the right in the photo) is 48 years old. Rita went through elementary education. She is married to Ebenezer, and they have three children. Rita lives alone with her husband, and they both are responsible for their household needs.

To meet their needs, Rita procures fish and eggs in the market and resells them to customers.

In order to increase her sales and to satisfy customer demand, Rita joined with her friend to request their seventh loan from ID-Ghana. Their previous loans have all been repaid correctly.

They need a total amount of GHS 3,600 to be able to satisfy customers promptly.

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.
