Over the weekend, the group of 15 women in Senegal fully raised their requested loan of $2,950. We contributed $25 to help the chair woman of the group, Mrs. Fatou, increase her inventory of palm oil and lemon juice. She is hoping to increase profits in order to improve the standard of living for her family, including nine children.
The Aba Ndiaya group will repay their loan fully in March, 2012. We will receive $25 in March to be able to re-lend to other Kiva borrowers around the world.
We still have $50 in our account, which we will lend to two Kiva borrowers. Keep up with our blog to stay informed!
