United Group
In this Group: Helena, Rose, Fatu, Watta, Maryamah
Helena K., who is holding the sign, is the leader of this group of five borrowers called the United Group. She is 33 years old and married with five children who are between the ages of 2 and 18 years. She was only able to attend school through 10th grade due to financial constraints.

For three years, she has been selling ladies blouses in the Waterside Market in downtown Monrovia, Liberia. She plans to use her 6,000-Liberian-Dollars portion of this 30,000-Liberian-Dollars group loan to buy more dozens of ladies blouses.

She describes herself as a friendly woman whose dream is to improve her business and to continue to educate her children so that they can have a better future.

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.
