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).

Nob Sa Jëkër Group's story

The solidarity group NOB SA JËKËR was created on December 5, 2007. It is composed of 18 women who all come from the same neighborhood. They established their group based on friendship and neighborhood. The solidarity group is affiliated with the NDIABOOT Banc Villageois. Mrs. NDATTE D., standing at the far right in the photo with a black scarf on her head, is the leader of the group. She is 41 years old, married and the mother of 5 children. She sells fresh fish at the market in her neighborhood. She gets her provisions on site from fish wholesalers from fishing villages. She has operated this business for 4 years. Her new loan will enable her to expand her fresh fish business by bolstering her stock. Her goal is to build her savings and to help her husband provide for the family’s financial needs.

In this group: Ndatte, Penda Sow, Daro, Aïssatou, Ma Asta, Dieryre, Diaratou, Khoudia, Binta, Awa, Awa, Anna, Anta, Soda, Mbengue, Fatou, Mame Fatma*, Oumy
