The members of this group are part of Anteh We group from Teshie-Accra, Ghana. The group is composed of three members who earn their living selling smoked fish, lobsters, crab, octopus, millet and corn. They need additional capital to maintain, enhance, and expand their businesses and decided to apply for a loan from ID-Ghana. They are excited and full of hope to begin this new loan with solid goals and dreams.

Mary is a 56-year-old single woman and has grown-up, independent children. In the picture, she is standing in the middle. She completed five years of formal education, but due to the poor economic condition of her family, had to stop her education.

Mary sells lobsters, crab and octopus. She is applying for her second loan with ID-Ghana. The requested funds will be used to purchase lobsters, crab and octopus.

On behalf of her colleagues, Mary expresses gratitude and appreciation for the support from Kiva investors throughout the world who provide such necessary and vital support.

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.
