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).

Rocky Amad's Group's story

This group of 18 women has existed since October 24th, 2007, the creation date of the "bank villageois" that it belongs to. It is made up of women who live in the same village and surrounding villages. They are proud of their common understanding and solidarity. Their main business is retail.

Ndéye, standing in the picture and raising her hand, is 46 years old, married and the mother of 3 boys and 3 girls. She is a retailer and sells fabrics. She will therefore use the loan she has received to buy various types of fabrics (khartoum, wax). The profits she earns allow her to strengthen her business and increase her gains, which she will use to build her savings and pay her interest.

In this group: Rocky Amad, Ndeye Ngaye, Khar Yalla, Fatou, Bigue, Paulele, Gueum Yalla, Ndeye, Asta, Ndeye Mareme, Ngaya, Khady, Fatou, Khady, Fatou Daouda, Awa, Ndiole, Khemesse
