A loan of $1,600 helped a member to equip our new restaurant.

Casa Mas Group's story

We had already a Kiva loan that we have paid off long ago. However, during our activity, we met a European partner who proposed us to open a restaurant in a large city, in which we could sell the products from our ecovillage. Thus we came to Dakar and found a good location, where we can open a restaurant with a large seat capacity. Now that we have found the perfect location, we come to you and apply for the renewal of our loan. It will enable us to work on a larger scale and secure sustainable employment for each member of our group. We are very confident in our future, thanks to the experience we gained with our first loan. This second loan will help us to broaden our scope, as the first loan was used to open just a small restaurant, but now we will use our gained experience to operate on a larger scale and fully exploit our working capacity.
