Women Of Destiny Group
In this Group: Kemah, Albortha, Partrica, Korpo, Evelyn
Kemah Z., who is holding the sign, is the leader of a group of five borrowers called Women Of Destiny. She is 46 years old, married and has six children who range from 8 to 29 years old. She was not able to attend school because she was living in poverty. Kemah cares for two siblings.

For 12 years, she has been selling rice, tobacco, palm oil and dried meat in Redlight Market on the outskirts of Monrovia, Liberia.

She plans to use her 6,000 Liberian Dollars portion of this 30,000 Liberian Dollars group loan to buy more bags of rice, tobacco, palm oil and dried meat. She describes herself as a service-oriented woman. Her dream is to improve her business and build a house.

In the photo that accompanies this profile, Evelyn is inset at lower right because she was absent during disbursal.

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.
