Our ecovillage is located in an area frequented by tourists who all go to a town very far away from our ecovillage to connect to the internet. The same thing happens with the young people in our village who also go to the town looking to connect to the internet. Since there is great demand for the internet, we would like to ask for your help in creating a cybercafé in the village which would fill the current gap in information technology in our area. Ever since our village got wired for electricity and connected to the telephone network, we have been looking to open a cybercafé, not only in order to create jobs, but to take part in the development of our locality by allowing the populace access to information via modern communication technology. For this reason we have established two groups, each having the same objective. Translated from French by Teresa Kramer, Kiva volunteerNotre écovillage se trouve dans une zone touristique qui voit toutes les personnes qui y viennent se rendre dans une ville très éloignée de notre écovillage pour se connecter à Internet. c'est la même situation qui se répète pour les jeunes du village qui empruntent la même voie pour avoir accès à une connection. La demande étant très forte à ce sujet, nous venons solliciter votre appui afin que nous puissions créer un cybercafé dans le village et permettant ainsi de combler le gap numérique qui existait dans les environs. Depuis que notre village est connecté aux réseaux électrique et téléphonique, nous oeuvrons dans le sens de créer un cybercafé pour non seulement créer des emplois, mais participer aussi au développement de notre localité en aidant les populations à avoir accès à l'information avec les nouvelles technologies de comunication modernes. pour cela nous nous sommes constitués en deux groupement avec chacun le même objectif.

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.
