A loan of $1,500 helped a member fattening of cattle.


Diap Thialène Group's story

Located in the Thiès region, Louly Ngogom (http://www.sem-fund.org/loulyngogomfr.php) is a quiet little town whose main activities are agriculture and livestock. The harvest in 2007 was bountiful, and access to water and the availability of peanut straw for fodder make Louly a good place for fattening cattle. That is why we have come to Kiva requesting a loan to purchase young steers for fattening. Our goal is to use them to increase our monetary income and to use the manure to improve the fertility of our soil.
