Bigger loans for successful businesswomen
Caurie is a well-organised microfinance institute which focuses on poor women from rural communities in two Senegalese rural regions. The organisation is growing rapidly and had over 12,000 clients halfway through 2007. Cauri needs a loan of 50,0000 euros to be able to lend this money and distribute it in little sums at a time to local, poor women. Credit suppliers such as Oikocredit believe it is too risky to supply such a big loan to a young organisation which is growing so fast. Within this project Terrafina Microfinance supplies a 30% guarantee to Caurie on one of Oikocredit's loans, so that it is able to get it.
