Timap Bifo Group's story

These entrepreneurs have formed themselves into a group of 5, made Kadiatu S. (in the middle of the photo) their leader, and named their group 'Timap Bifo'. Now, they have applied for a loan of SLL 500,000 each from SMT/Kiva lenders. With the help of this loan, they can expand their businesses both in size and quality. Consequently, sales and profit-to-sales margin will also improve. In this way, their living standards will improve.

Their leader, Kadiatu, is now 29 years old. She was born in Kono, eastern Sierra Leone. She is married to a professional worker and they have 2 children, both of whom are in primary school. Kadiatu has been selling perfume and charcoal for 5 years now. With her share of the loan, she will buy more perfume and charcoal to add to her business inventory.
