God Power Group
In this Group: Mamie, Marconee, Annie, Martha, Bea
Mamie S. is the leader of this group of five borrowers called God Power. In the photo, Mamie is the one holding the sign. She is 32 years old, single, and has five children who range from 5 to 22 years old. She was only able to attend school through 6th grade due to poverty.

For two years, Mamie has been selling rice, milk and biscuits at the Thinker’s Village in Paynesville, Liberia. She sells her goods in a friendly manner which keeps customers returning.

Mamie plans to use her 8,000 Liberian dollar portion of this 38,000 Liberian dollar group loan to buy more rice, milk and biscuits to sell. Her goal is to grow her business and build a house for her family.

About LEAP:
The Local Enterprise Assistance Program (LEAP) is Liberia's largest and oldest continuously operating micro-finance institution with thirteen branches across the country. Founded in 1994, the non-profit organization has survived periods of civil war and severe socio-economic hardship. LEAP seeks to help rebuild post-conflict Liberia through its group and individual loans to micro- and small-scale entrepreneurs, and puts emphasis on lending to women.

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.
