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).

Sop Sa Aladji Group's story

Sop Sa Aladji Group was established on May 8, 2010. It is made up of 12 women coming from the same village. Their main businesses are retailing and raising livestock.

Binta is responsible for the group. She's the one standing on the right and raising her hand in the photograph. She's 37 years old, married, and has five children to support.

She transforms peanuts into oil. She has a good experience in this field, due to the fact that she's been running this business for four years. Her loan will enable her to buy peanuts.

Her ambition is to help her husband in taking care of the children's school expenses.

In this group: Binta, Maguette*, Anta, Aminata, Rama Bamba, Marelle, Adama, Penda Thierno, Penda, Ngaydo, Fatou, Fatim
