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).

Juboo Group's story

The solidarity group Juboo of the Banc Villageois of Ndiongué was established on May 12, 2010. It is comprised of fifteen women from the same village who have the same occupation (small-scale commerce and the fattening of sheep).  

Fatou, aged 31, is the group’s official. She is a widow and has seven children to support. Two of the children belong to her co-wife. Fatou has been active for four years in a small business selling smoked fish and oil. At the same time, she fattens sheep. She gets her supplies at the weekly market and makes her sales in the village. In the photo, she is the one at the left raising her right hand. She is dressed in mauve and wearing a white shawl.

Her loan will enable her to bolster her sales capacity, so as to bring in more revenue.  

She is responsible for all family expenses but would like to use her profits to increase her savings.

In this group: Fatou, Fama, Fatou, Ndeye, Nogaye, Ndawa, Gaye, Awa, Fatim, Awa, Mbene, Ndack, Aïda, Mbenda, Ndeye Bity
