More information about this loan

To reach borrowers who would not normally qualify for loans, UIMCEC has developed partnerships with a number of local organizations created by the poor to promote savings and mutual support. Most members of these organizations take group loans from UIMCEC. Some group members have larger businesses requiring more capital, and therefore receive individual loans. To meet their needs, UIMCEC is offering this loan at a lower interest rate with no material guarantee requirement. By supporting this loan, you are helping poor borrowers access credit at  lower interest rates.


This loan is administered by UIMCEC, a Kiva Field Partner in Senegal since 2008.
