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).

Takku Liguey Dialègne Group's story

The group "Takku Liguey Dialègne" is a solidarity group composed of five women who live in the same district. They run a business involving cosmetics, fabrics, shoes, and a variety of beauty products.

A year ago, they opened an account at the microfinance institution U-IMCEC, and they place their deposits in it to build up savings and to access credit.

The revenues they derive from this business are insufficient for meeting their needs due to their low business capital. To increase this capital, they are requesting a loan of 250,000 francs from U-IMCEC to buy cosmetics and fabrics. Their ambition is to establish a large shop at the market in their town.

In this group: Fatou , Mame Assa , Dicko , Fatou , Aida
