She has been selling wax-print fabrics for six years at the central market. She has very good experience in this domain. That is why she is acquiring a loan of 1200 GHS (Ghana Cedis) from Kiva partner ID Ghana to buy more wax-print fabric to sell to her customers. This loan will improve both her business and her family situation.

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.
