Aminata's story

Ms. Aminata T. is a retailer of vegetables at the market in Camberene, a suburb of Dakar. She has more than 5 years of experience in this field, and she would like to increase her working capital in order to enlarge her business. She is married and has children.

Ms. T. is a beneficiary of the agreement between U-IMCEC (one of Kiva's field partners) and the Program for the Development of Children and Families (PDEF in French) Seydina Issa Laye. The PDEF seeks to reduce poverty within the community, and especially to protect children who come from destitute families. Thanks to this cooperation, the parents of these children can benefit from loans having more flexible terms, as compared to ordinary loans. Since the agreement's inception in December 2008, 120 parents have received financing in amounts varying from 50,000 to 150,000 francs.
