A loan of $1,550 helped a member to build a fruit and vegetable transformation unit.


Yon Dial 2 Group's story

Palmarin (http://www.sem-fund.org/palmarinfr.php) is a village rich in fruits and vegetables. Nevertheless, lack of structures specialized in transformation incite people to import fruit and vegetables juices at very high cost. This why this group of women, confronted with difficulties in conserving and disposing of fresh products (cabbages, tomatoes, carrots) are seeking a Kiva loan to create a local fruit and vegetable transformation unit. They will sell the transformed products to touristic businesses and meet a large customer demand.

In this group: Anne Marie, Thérése, Tacko, Fatou, Seynabou
