God Is In Control Group
In this Group: Mariama, Destine, Agatha, Jebbeh, Musu
Mariama D. sells prepared food. She buys foodstuffs, cooks meals and sells by the plate to residents of Virginia, a community north of the capital, Monrovia, in Liberia. Mariama is 26 years old and married with a 7-year-old child in kindergarten. Mariama is a 3rd grade drop-out due to the Liberian civil crisis. She and her family live in Virginia, a newly built community for poor people who can't afford to buy a town lot.

Mariama has been running her business for two years and hopes to start a restaurant in the future. Mariama's problem is shelter because, when it rains, there is nowhere for customers to sit and eat. She talks nicely to her customers and always cooks delicious food for them, to encourage them to continue buying from her. She needs this loan to purchase foodstuffs like oil, rice, cubes, salt, pepper, etc. in order to serve her customers. Mariama depends on her business to pay her child's school fees and to take care of her daily needs. She dreams of improving her standard of living and continuing her education to the highest level.

"God Is In Control" is a group of five borrowers led by Mariama D..

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.
