but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Kallon Drive Group's story

Aminata is a forty-five years old business woman and a member of Kallon Drive solidarity group, which has four members, all of whom are women. Aminata sells charcoal and has been in this business for the past fifteen years. She opens her business six days in a week from 8am to 6pm. Aminata established her business to help support her children in school. She pays school fees, buys learning material and provides food from the profit she gets from her business.

Aminata and her group members need a loan totaling 4,000,000 SLL of which Aminata is entitled to 1,500,000 SLL which she will use to buy 100 bags of charcoal for her business. She hopes that this loan will help her generate more profit to support her family. Aminata is married and has 3 children, some of whom are in school. Aminata was able to improve her stock level during the previous loan. One of her children graduated from the university and is now a teacher in one of the schools in Freetown.

In the future, Aminata still plans to save more money to provide for her children’s university education and to acquire land to build a house for her retirement age. Aminata will be very appreciative to anyone that can help.
