Courage Group's story
Yel, pictured on the right, is the leader of this group of five women entrepreneurs. Yel was born in Kono City, about 35 years ago. She is married to a driver and the couple have two children, the oldest of which is attending primary school. Yel and the group sell dried fish in the market. Yel has been doing this business for seven years now. With the help of this loan, Yel and her group members will be able to expand their businesses, make more sales and consequently improve on their living conditions. Each member will use her share of the loan (500,000 SLL) to buy more dried fish to sell in the market in order to increase their income. Note: The loan officer also appears in this photo.
