God Is My Helper Group
The featured borrower of the group is Mercy. She is 45 years old, and a single mother of one child. She pays for her child to attend school. To cope with her needs, for the past four years, Mercy has been selling cosmetics and wigs as a secondary saleswoman in her quarter. Mercy buys her products at a market in Ghana. Hoping to give her customers better service, Mercy would like to reinforce her business by increasing her stock of products. To do this, Mercy and the other members of this group request a loan from 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.
