To improve her living conditions and to earn some extra income, she wants to access a loan. Being Jemima's forth loan cycle with ID-Ghana, she needs a loan to expand her business since demand has become high. From the loan she will purchase African fabric, scarves and beads to sell to 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.
