After a successful initial experience, we are here to request from Kiva a second granting of a loan that will enable us consolidate our previous work (buying and selling seafood products produced in our eco-village) and also to buy in cities some manufactured goods (common kitchen utensils, cosmetics, and perfumes) to resell in our eco-village and surrounding areas. The first loan enabled us to understand how to earn a living by working honestly and to see how to save money. This time, we want to see to it that our business, which is the marketing of various products, is more formalized because, with this loan amount, we will have a greater ability to meet the demand and also to handle the seafood products being sold by our fishermen, who are active in our eco-village. This will enable us to support ourselves in the fight against poverty, which is very great in our isolated area, that is, Carabane Island.

Après une première expérience réussie, nous venons solliciter Kiva pour l'octroi d'un deuxième prêt qui va mous permettre de consolider nos activités antérieures ( achat et vente de produits halieutiques transformés dans notre écovillage) et de pouvoir acheter ausi des produits fabriqués dans les villes (ustensiles courantes de cuisines et autres produits cosmétiques et parfumeries) pour les revendre dans notre écovillage et ses environs. Le premier prêt nous a permis de comprendre comment on peut gagner sa vie en travaillant honnêtement et de voir comment faire des économies. Cette fois nous voulons faire en sorte que notre activité qui est la commercialisation des produits divers, soit une activité plus formelle, car avec ce montant, nous auront plus de capacité à répondre à la demande et aussi faire face à l'offre des produits halieutique transformés par nos pècheurs qui s'activent dans notre écovillage. Cela nous permettra de nous soutenir entre nous pour lutter contre la pauvreté qui est très forte dans cette zone enclavée qui est notre île de Carabane

Additional Information

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.
