Degoo De Carabane Group
In this Group: Safiétou, Madeleine , Aissatou , Emma, Chimère
We are a group of young women, along with a man, who are working in the commerce of food items, kitchen utensils, and the processing of seafood harvested from our eco-village. We compose one group in which each of us has a business that is different from the next. Each of us will use the loan in our respective domains to work and create revenues, which are going to help us to provide for our families and to pay for the schooling and the care of our children.

We live in an isolated area where we lack access to conventional loans. For this reason, we've come to requesting the granting of a loan from Kiva, so that we may work, as do many of our sisters.

Nous sommes un groupe de jeunes femmes, accompagnées d'un homme, qui travaillent dans le commerce de denrées alimentaires, d'ustensiles de cuisine, et la transformation de produits halieutiques pêchés dans notre écovillage. Nous sommes constitués en groupe qui fait chacune une activité différente de l'autre. Le prêt va nous servir chacun dans son domaine de travailler et de créer des revenus qui va nous aider à subvenir aux besoins de nos familles et à payer la scolarité et les soins de nos enfants.
Nous habitons une zone enclavée où nous n'avons pas la possibilité d'accéder aux crédits conventionnels. C'est pour cette raison que nous sommes venus solliciter Kiva pour l'octroi d'un prêt afin que nous puissions travailler comme beaucoup de nos sœurs.

Additional Information

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.
