Corépa 2 Group's story

The women of the Corépa 2 Group in Palmarin ecovillage (http://www.sem-fund.org/palmarinfr.php) would like to thank Kiva for having faith in them. They are, however, calling on Kiva again to request a new loan of 700,000 F ($1,500) to allow them to keep their dyeing businesses going. With this loan, they will buy dyeing materials and lots of fabric to increase their stock. They will use this fabric to make clothes that will be sold in tourist outlets in the ecovillage and also sent off to Dakar, the capital of Senegal, for a fast sale.
