We are a village of almost 400 people who are fishermen and farmers. Our area enjoys a flood-retarding basin that allows us from now on to cultivate the land year round. Since we live around the basin, we would like to take advantage of the water’s proximity to generate and commercialize market gardening produce that are farmed all around. The financing will be used to buy watering cans, gardening tool, seeds, fertilizers and pesticides. We will also buy what others produce to go and sell them in Mbour, a big town and a seaside town full of hotels. The population wants to take advantage of the proximity of the basin to really fight poverty.

Translated from French by Véronique Fourment, Kiva volunteer.

Nous sommes un village de près de 400 habitants qui sont des pêcheurs et agriculteurs. Notre zone

bénéficie d'un bassin de rétention qui nous permet désormais de faire de l'agriculture durant toute l'année.

Puisque nous habitons autour du bassin, nous voulons profiter de la proximité de l'eau pour faire de la

production et la commercialisation de des produits maraîchers qui se cultivent tout autour. Le financement

nous servira à nous équiper en arrosoirs, matériels de jardinage, semences, engrais et pesticides et aussi

à acheter ce que les autres personnes produisent pour aller les vendre à Mbour qui une station balnéaire

plein d'hôtels et qui est une très grande ville. les population veulent profiter de la proximité du bassin pour

vraiment lutter contre la pauvreté.

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.
