Masorie Progressive Union Group's story

These are members of the Masorie Progressive Union group. This is the second loan this group is accessing from SMT/Kiva. The members have experienced a vast improvement in their businesses as a result of the first loan and they are therefore requesting a new loan, having successfully repaid the previous one. With the help of this loan, they will be able to further expand their businesses and make better profits so that they can look after themselves and their children.

Umu S. K. (left) is the leader of this group. She sells palm-oil, rice, groundnuts (peanuts), and other locally produced food items. She has been a businesswoman for more than ten years.

Umu is now forty-two years of age. She was born in Kamakwe but now lives in Masorie village where she is married. She has two children: one is now a driver and the other has just taken the West Africa Senior Secondary Schools examinations.

In this group: Umu S., Adama, Brima , Fatmata, Fatu
