And Book Diom Bou Ndiol Group
In this Group: Sokhna , Fatou , Aïdara , Khady , Coumba , Adjara , Coumba Gati , Fatou , Mame A, Amy Sar
The 'And Book Diom Bou Ndiol' Group is made up of ten women, who live in the same village and get together whenever they need to. Their president is Sokhna (seen in the photo with her hand raised). She is 37 years old, married and has children. She grows vegetables for sale, and will use her loan to buy seeds and other products needed for this work. She has more than ten years' experience, and grows cabbages, rice, onions and aubergines.

Sokhna helps her husband to provide for the day-to-day expenses of their household, and the school fees of their children. She starts her working day at 9am, stops between 1pm and 4pm, and then works in the fields again until 7pm.

In the future, she would like to extend the amount of land that she grows vegetables on, but in order to do this, she will need to continue using the support of the field partner. Further into the future, Sokhna would like to become a supplier of vegetables.

More information about this loan

This loan is part of UIMCEC's efforts to serve farmers' needs. UIMCEC has modified loan conditions to allow for seasonal disbursements and bullet repayments at the end of the loan term. UIMCEC is also offering agricultural insurance to repay the loan in the event of crop failure, and has partnered with USAID and some local NGOs to provide technical assistance to borrowers. By supporting this loan, you are helping underserved farmers in rural areas access financial services to smooth incomes, increase yields, and better their lives.


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.
