Gie Kégnéto Group
In this Group: Bourama, Damane, Amadou, Gnara, Dioutala
We are residents of a village of fruit and vegetable producers. This is why we’ve come to request a loan for launching our market-gardening production, which is work that we’ve always managed in our eco-village. We know we can produce a lot of vegetables if we were to obtain backing and support. These are the reasons behind our loan application with your institution, so that we can buy fertilizers, along with supplies and equipment, for gardening. We could then really tackle our work as soon as winter is over. We are conscious of the fact that this business can be very profitable for us and also for local populations.

Nous sommes des habitants d'un village de producteurs de fruits et légumes. C'est pour cela que nous sommes venus solliciter un prêt prêt pour nous lancer dans la production maraîchère qui est une activité que nous avons toujours mené dans notre écovillage. Nous savons que nous pouvons produire beaucoup de légumes si nous bénéficions de soutien et d'appui. C'est la raison pour la quelle nous sommes venus solliciter auprès de votre institution un prêt, afin de pouvoir acheter des intrants avec du matériel de jardinage pour que nous puissions nous atteler au travail dès la fin de l'hivernage. Nous sommes conscient que cette activité peut être très rentable pour nous et aussi pour les populations locales.

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.
