These women, who live in the same neighborhood, set up this loan group so that they could request funding from IMCEC and increase their working capital; the loan group is called Sope Naby.

Their president, Fatou, buys ready-to-wear clothes and fabrics for resale. She sells on a door-to-door basis and her customers include the residents of the neighborhood and surrounding areas. She is married and contributes to the household expenses. She is 32 years old and has five children, the eldest of whom is 16 years old and the youngest five. Fatou adores her job and has ten years experience in this field. She has always dreamed of becoming a significant trader who could travel all over the world. While waiting to do this she would very much like to set up a shack to display her products.

Additional Information


This loan is administered by UIMCEC, a Kiva Field Partner in Senegal since 2008. UIMCEC is a government-regulated microfinance institution whose mission is to improve the revenue and well-being of families through access to financial services, allowing principally women and young adult micro-entrepreneurs living in rural and semi-rural areas to develop their revenue-generating businesses and supporting them in becoming financially self-sufficient.

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.
