A loan of $600 helped a member invest in his business.


Hope To God Group's story

This is Ibrahim S. and Memuna T.. They named their group "Hope to God". This is not the first loan these entrepreneurs have accessed from SMT/Kiva. Previous loans have created a tremendous impact on the businesses and the personal lives of these entrepreneurs. Having repaid their last loan successfully, they are asking for a new loan of $600. With this loan, they will be able to increase the sizes and qualities of their businesses, and consequently make a better profit and improve on their standard of living.

Ibrahim S. (right) is the leader of this group. Ibrahim is twenty-three years old. He was born in Magburaka town, in Northern Sierra Leone. Ibrahim dropped out of school because his parents could not afford to pay his tuition fees. He started selling used clothes (referred to here as junks or kongo klose) five years ago. Out of his "junks" business he is able to sustain himself and support his parents.

In this group: Ibrahm, Memuna
