Lifted Up Group
In this Group: Joyce, Hannah, Tawiah
"Lifted Up Group" is made up of 3 women in the central part of the town. They are into fish mongering and provisions, and they meet on Friday to discuss business issues. This is their 5th loan cycle with ID-Ghana and they have repaid all loans without default. One woman is married with children and two women are not married.

Joyce is 51 years old and not married. She works hard to progress from one loan cycle to the other. She has been growing tremendously in the sale of fish because fish is a consumable item and thereby is in demand high. She was given 500 Ghana cedis in her 4th loan cycle and completed the cycle on 03/08/2012. She now needs 700 Ghana cedis to be able to buy more fish to sell to customers.

The women in this group need a total of 1650 Ghana cedis to be able to expand their businesses.

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.
