Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT), a partner of Kiva.org in Makeni, northern Sierra Leone, is very pleased to present to you members of the “We Yone” group. These small-scale entrepreneurs have come to SMT/Kiva lenders to seek a loan of 1,200,000 SLL for each of them in order to invest in their respective businesses. Fatmata is the leader of this group. Fatmata is 42 years old and married with four children. One of her children is in primary school, two are in secondary school and one is in college. Fatmata sells cooked rice mixed with sauce. With the help of this loan, she will invest in her business by buying cooking ingredients like uncooked rice, fish, palm oil, tomatoes, onions, etc. in large quantities in order to produce a larger quantity of cooked rice for sale.
