She would like to expand her business and ensure her family's well being. This is why she's seeking her first loan from Kiva's partner, WAGES, in order to buy work tools and reach her goals.
She gets help from five other people and, at the same time, she's responsible for Totiman Group, which is made up of two women and one man. They put their faith in the land and grow corn.
Like Taminane, the other members of the group hope to get a good yield and take care of their family.
More information about this loan
This loan is part of a special WAGES program for groups of Togolese farmers and livestock breeders, offering financing at a lower interest rate in addition to relevant training. The reduced interest rate is designed to hit a sweet spot, empowering clients in rural Togo to capture significant, impactful profits and become more financially stable after three credit cycles. WAGES is working with the Togolese government, Veterinarians Without Borders and the African Institute for Economic and Social Development to make this program possible. By supporting this loan, you're extending opportunity in a country where 70% of the population works in agriculture but financing options remain scarce.
