Rokel Social Club Group's story
In the photo are members of the “Rokel Social Club” group. They are small scale businesswomen based in Magburaka, a town in northern Sierra Leone. This is the first loan these entrepreneurs are accessing from SMT/Kiva. With this loan, they will be able to expand their businesses, make more profit and consequently improve their standard of living. The leader of this group is Regina M. T.. Regina is twenty-eight years old. She was born in one of the villages that make up Yoni, in northern Sierra Leone. Currently, she lives in Magburaka, together with her husband and four children, who attend primary school. Regina sells firewood and cooked rice. With her share of this loan, Regina will buy cooking ingredients – rice, palm oil, tomatoes, etc. - and firewood in order to improve her business.
