Sunset Group
In this Group: Comfort, Joyce, Grace, Mary, Florence, Grace, Dora
Comfort is 29 years old, widowed, and the mother of four children, all of whom are currently in school. She enjoys selling goods to make a living, and has been selling foodstuffs such as tubers of yam, plantain, cassava, vegetable oil, etc. for five years now. Comfort treks to farming communities to buy her stock of foodstuffs from local farmers. This saves her from intermediaries who buy from the farmers and resell at a higher price. She wants to use her loan to buy in bulk to meet the daily demands of her customers over the Christmas festivities. She hopes to use part of her profit to support her children in school, and part to expand her business to the desired level. She would be grateful for your assistance.

Comfort is the leader of a trust bank group called ‘Sunset’. Most of the members of this group are petty traders, food vendors, or farmers. In this group, members guarantee for one another as social collateral to access the loan and peer pressure to repay the loan. The group would be grateful for your assistance.

Additional Information

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.
