Sarah Sackor Group
In this Group: Missionmah, Naomi, Francis , Gbolebgo, Emma
Missionmah R. is the leader of a group of five borrowers called Sarah Sackor Group. She is 58 years old, married and has six children who range from 25 to 40 years old. She did not have the opportunity to go to school.

For more than 3 years, Missionmah has been running her doughnut business at the Old Road Market in Monrovia, Liberia. Missionmah prepares her doughnuts well and takes the doughnuts around to customers which keeps them buying from her.

Missionmah plans to use her 14,000 Liberian dollar portion of this 56,000 Liberian dollar group loan to purchase more flour, sugar and oil for making doughnuts. Her goal is to improve her business and buy land for her family.

In the photo that accompanies this profile, Missionmah is the one holding the sign. Naomi D. is inset at lower right.

About LEAP:
The Local Enterprise Assistance Program (LEAP) is Liberia's largest and oldest continuously operating microfinance institution with 13 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.
