We are a group of adult women doing commerce in staple goods, such as rice, cooking oil, sugar, and any other kinds of widely-consumed goods.  We have two stores located at the marketplace of our eco-village that we want to resupply with merchandise for September because supply problems at this time of year are quite numerous due to the rainy season settling in.  And the roads are difficult to navigate. 

The people of the surrounding villages exhibit difficulties in supplying themselves with food items due their isolation.  So, thanks to this loan, we'll be able to stock a lot of goods for facilitating access for neighboring populations.  This will also enable us to create steady jobs for our eco-village's young people, who are going to run these stores.

Nous sommes un groupes de femmes adultes qui faisons du commerce de denrées de premières nécessites comme du riz, de l'huile de cuisine , du sucre et tout autre type de produits de grandes consommation.Nous avons deux boutiques qui se trouvent au marché de notre écovillage que nous voulons ravitailler en marchandise pour le mois de septembre, car à cette période de l'année, les difficultés de ravitaillement sont très nombreuses à cause de la saison des pluies qui s'installe et les routes sont difficilement praticable. Les populations des villages environnants éprouvent des difficultés pour s'approvisionner en denrées alimentaires, à cause de leur enclavement. Donc grâce au prêt, nous pourront stocker beaucoup de produits pour faciliter l'accès aux populations voisines. Cela nous permettra aussi de créer des emplois fixes aux jeune de notre écovillage qui vont gérer ces boutiques.

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.
