Gladys's Group
In this Group: Richard, Belinda, Gladys, Paulina, Samuel
This is a group of five members who decided to unite several years ago and join ID-Ghana social micro finance, which has helped them a lot since with their loans as they have been able to improve their small businesses and their quality of life. They are humble people and live off of the little that they earn with their business activities. They dedicate themselves to different activities such as businesses, services and food sales, among other things.

One of the members of this group is Samuel, who is 30 years old, separated, and from this relationship has one child who is 12 years old and in school.

Samuel is a man who likes to get ahead on the basis of his efforts. He sells eggs and shoes from door-to-door every day. He has several customers who come to his house to buy his products. He has been selling these products for the past two years, and it is going very well.

His loan amount of 2,000 GHS will be used in the purchase of more crates of eggs and shoes. He has been with this microfinance from the beginning of 2011 and this is his 5th loan cycle. He likes it because of the help that the loans have given to him. He is standing on the far right with a crate of eggs in his hand in the photograph. His dream is to get ahead.

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.
