Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

Sope Mame Diarra 1 Group's story

The Sope Mame Diarra 1 group is composed of 5 women who lived together in the Randoulène neighborhood of Thies. They are engaged in petty commerce, selling products of interest to women, notably "pagnes" (lengths of brightly colored African print cloth), necklaces, and incense. They have opened an account with the credit union and want to request a loan to increase their working capital.

In this group: Mame Diarra Bousso, Soda, Magatte, Thiombe, Cheikh Niang
