Jappo Liggey (Asf) N°11 Group
In this Group: Penda, Aïda, Thierno, Khady Diagne, Aïssata
Jappo Ligguey (ASF) is a mixed association composed of multiple individuals running small enterprises. It has been created in 2009 by a group of women who wanted to bring together all their peers in the district of Angle Serigne Fallou (ASF) under the slogan “mutual aid for doing work.” The group is lead by Mrs. Marie N. Diouf and is organized into multiple sub-groups of five, as advised by the agent of the Moda Kane credit union, so that all members could better benefit from U-IMCEC services. Thus several sub-groups have requested a loan of 500,000 West African francs, which will be divided equally among the members. Jappo Liggey # 11 is managed by Mrs. Penda C., who has been selling breakfast foods in front of the local school since 2002. She also sells jewelry, honey and palm oil. As regards her choice of trade, Mrs. Penda Cisokho says the following: “I never had schooling in all my life, and when I wanted to find a useful occupation, commerce was something I could deal with as I kept an open mind and told myself that very often commerce is simply about networking, which was easy to do in the place where I live.” And so with her part of the loan Mrs. C. would like to boost her budget for restocking.

Mrs. Aida T. is the treasurer. She has been selling breakfast and dinner foods in Grand Thiès for six years. The other members are Mr. Thierno Nidaye, a street vendor selling onions, clothing, socks and shoes at different markets in Thiès, Mrs. Khady Diagne M., who sells second-hand clothes and dinner foods in Randoulène Nord, a modest district of Thiès, and Mrs. Aissanta D., who sells bowls, plates, fabrics and incense.

Jappo Ligguey (asf) est une association mixte composée de plusieurs personnes microentrepreuneuses. Elle a été créée en 2009 par un groupe de femmes pour rassembler tous leurs paires du quartier Angle Serigne Fallou (asf) autour d’un même idéal « l’entraide pour travailler ». Elle est dirigée par Madame Marie N. Diouf et est scindée en plusieurs sous groupes de 5 sous l’influence de l’agent de crédit de la caisse Moda Kane pour que tous les membres puissent bénéficier mieux des services d’U-IMCEC. C’est ainsi que certains sous groupes ont déposé leur demande de crédit de 500 000 FCFA qu’ils vont se partager en part égale.
Jappo Liggey N°11 est géré par Madame Penda C. commerçante de petits déjeuners devant le CEM du quartier depuis 2002. Elle s’active également dans la vente de bijoux, miel et huile de palme. Par rapport au choix de ce business, Madame Penda C. dit : « je n’avais pas reçu de formation durant toute ma vie et lorsque j’ai voulu combattre l’oisiveté le commerce était le secteur que je pouvais embrasser car j’étais très ouverte et je me disais très souvent que le commerce n’est rien que le tissage de relation, ce qui était facile à mon endroit ». Cependant, avec sa part du prêt Madame C. voudrait compléter son budget d’approvisionnement.
Madame Aïda T. est la trésorière. Elle est vendeuse de petit déjeuner et de diner à Grand Thiès depuis 6 ans. Les autres membres sont Monsieur Thierno N. vendeur ambulant d’oignons, habits, chaussettes et chaussures à travers les marchés de Thiès, Madame Khady Diagne M. vendeuse de friperie et de diner à Randoulène Nord un quartier populaire de Thiès et Madame Aïssata D. qui vend des bols, assiettes, tissus et de l’encens.

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.
