Retail business is the primary occupation of the people from this village. Women particularly devote themselves to retail business due to the lack of industry in the village. The objectives of this group are to improve the living conditions of its members and to lighten the load of these housewives. Their retail business consists of the purchase and resale of fishing products, fruits, palm oil from the Ziguinchor region, fabric, traditional printed cloth, holiday celebration items from the Kaolack region and other merchandise that can be easily sold and that does not deteriorate quickly. This allows them to make lots of sales during holidays like Korité (l'Aïd el Fitr) and Tabaski (Aïd el Kabir).
Le commerce est la principale activité des populations. Les femmes s'adonnent surtout au commerce à cause du manque d'industries dans le village. Le groupement s’est fixé entre autre objectif d’améliorer les conditions de vie de ses membres, d’alléger le panier de la ménagère. Il s’agit d’achat et de revente de produits halieutiques, fruits, et huile de palme venant de la région de Ziguinchor, des tissus, des pagnes, des articles de fête venant de la région de Kaolack et toute autre marchandise facile à vendre et ne se détériorant pas vite. Ce qui leur permettra de faire de bonnes affaires durant comme les fêtes de Korité (l’Aïd el Fitr) et de Tabaski (Aïd el Kabir).
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.
