Faithful Women Group
In this Group: Sarah, Sia , Agnes, Mary , Allison
Sarah is a 48-year-old woman. She never went to school because she grew up deep in the interior of Liberia. Sarah has 4 children that she raised until they were so big they left the house and 2 children that she is still working on raising in her home. All of her children were able to attend school (unlike her) and she made sure to send them to private school so that they could have a quality education.

Sarah’s business is selling plastic dishes in the market. She has been doing this for 4 years. She says that she attracts customers by talking sweet to them and making them laugh. She dreams that her business will continue to grow so that she can support the rest of her children through school.

With the loan she is requesting, she will be able to restock her dishes. Because the currency is ever changing, Sarah does not have a specfic number of containers of dishes that she plans to buy. She hopes that the money will stretch to allow her to purchase 13-20 dozen.

Additional Information

Note on LEAP:

During routine partner monitoring, Kiva learned that LEAP's delinquency data may be understated due to technical problems with their reporting software. Because this report is key to our analysis of the risk of this partner, delinquency or default rates on loans to this partner may be higher than we expect. For further details, see LEAP’s partner page on Kiva.

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.
