GIE Bokk Deggo group consists of five women who operate in the commercial sector.
Mrs. Bineta, the group president, has been a poultry farmer for the past five years. She manages her own market which enables her to sell her chickens when they are ready. This saves both time and money.
With the credit loan, she can increase her production capacity, and also improve food conditions for her family.
She dreams of having a large chicken coop and being able to fully exploit it.
Le GIE Book Deggo regroupe 5 femmes qui évoluent dans le secteur du commerce. Madame Bineta, la présidente du groupe, fait de l’aviculture depuis maintenant 5 ans. Elle a un marché qui lui permet d’écouler ses poulets dès qu’ils sont à terme et cela lui fait gagner du temps et de l’argent. Avec le crédit, elle pourra augmenter sa capacité de production mais aussi du coté familial, améliorer les conditions alimentaires.
Elle rêve d’avoir un grand poulailler et de l’exploiter à fond.
This loan is administered by UIMCEC, a Kiva Field Partner in Senegal since 2008. UIMCEC is a government-regulated microfinance institution whose mission is to improve the revenue and well-being of families through access to financial services, allowing principally women and young adult micro-entrepreneurs living in rural and semi-rural areas to develop their revenue-generating businesses and supporting them in becoming financially self-sufficient.
This is a Group Loan
In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.
Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
