Thank God Group
In this Group: David, Beatrice, Suweba, Gladys, Beatrice, Michael
The group Thank God will start its third cycle with ID-Ghana. The group is comprised of six members and they are into the sale of commodities including porridge, secondhand shirts, rubber drums, slippers, underwear, and carpentry. They will hold each other responsible for the repayment of the loan.

The loan will benefit the small micro-businesses where Suweba is a member. She says that two years ago she was integrated into the group due to an invitation from a colleague that is a client of the institution. Now she has a business selling porridge. She actually began this business many years ago but was able to increase her sales by selling at the pavement.

This loan is so Suweba can buy millet and firewood to prepare porridge and sell to customers, and to eventually improve her retail space. This work enables her to generate income so that she can support her family. When we asked what she liked about ID-Ghana, Suweba responded that she likes the training offered.

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.
