Bendu Group's story

This is Wurie B., Saidu C., Daniel B., Paul B., and Jatu K.. They have named their group B. United, named after the group leader’s surname. Wurie B. (second from left) is 39 years of age. He was born in Magburaka in northern Sierra Leone. He is married with two children, all of whom attend primary school. Wurie sells ready-to-wear clothes and has been in this business for over 18 years now.

This will be the third loan these entrepreneurs have requested from Kiva lenders through SMT. Their previous loans have significantly impacted the lives of these borrowers: they have been able to feed their families, send their children to school, and solve many of their daily financial challenges.

Having repaid their last loan successfully, they are now requesting a new loan to further strengthen their businesses.

In this group: Wurie, Daniel, Paul , Saidu, Jatu
