Takku Liggey Pacathiaré Ndawène Group
In this Group: Assane, Sokhna
Takku Liggey Pacathiaré Ndawène Group consists of women who have been active in agriculture for years. The group is asking for their second loan in order to buy seeds, fertilizer, and pesticides for the cultivation of their fields. Assane, at the left of the photo, is the representative of the group. She is married and a mother. Her group consists of her neighbors with whom she lives in the same neighborhood. It is thanks to this business that she can help her husband take care of their family's household expenses. But in order to improve their family diet, Assane wants to start another business: cattle fattening, on a small scale at first, until she has the capacity to raise many.

Assane, à gauche sur la photo est la responsable du groupe ; elle est mariée et mère de famille. Son groupe est constitué de ses voisines avec qui elle loge dans le même quartier. C’est grâce à cette activité, qu’elle peut appuyer son mari dans la gestion de la dépense quotidienne de sa famille, mais pour améliorer les conditions alimentaires de cette dernière, Assane veut démarrer une autre activité : l’embouche bovine : à petit échelle d’abord, jusqu’à ce qu’elle ait la capacité d’élever beaucoup.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

To reach borrowers who would not normally qualify for loans, UIMCEC has developed partnerships with a number of local organizations created by the poor to promote savings and mutual support. Most members of these organizations take group loans from UIMCEC. Some group members have larger businesses requiring more capital, and therefore receive individual loans. To meet their needs, UIMCEC is offering this loan at a lower interest rate with no material guarantee requirement. By supporting this loan, you are helping poor borrowers access credit at  lower interest rates.


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.
