Takku Liggueey Group
In this Group: Coumba, Nogaye, Salla, Aby, Awa
Takku Liggueey is a female group composed of five women: Mrs. Coumba S., the president, Mrs. Nogaye N., Mrs. Salla D., Mrs. Aby N., and Mrs. Awa D.. They are all from Notto, a rural community in the Thiès region. Because all five women sell vegetables at the grand market in Notto, they formed a group to better organize their business and help one another with work. They thus joined U-IMCEC Notto in 2009 to find the necessary finances for their trade. So, they are asking for a loan of 375,000 FCFA which they are going to split equally.
The president of Takku Liggueey, Mrs. Coumba S., is 31 years old. This married woman has been working in this trade for 15 years. She says she knows the environment and its components thanks to the market gardeners. With her part of the loan, she counts on strengthening her work like her other colleagues. She intends to buy vegetables like carrots, sprouts, eggplant and cassava. Finally, Mrs. Coumba S., who chose this work for love, thinks the trade allows her to lighten her household load.

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.
