A loan of $325 helped to invest in his business.


Alhaji I's story

This is Alhaji Issa S.. Alhaji is a local entrepreneur in Magburaka town; he sells medicine at the town’s main market. This will the fifth loan Alhaji is accessing from SMT/Kiva. Previous loans have made a tremendous impact into the live and business of this entrepreneur. Having made his last loan repayment as member of a solidarity group, he is now asking for a loan of SLL1,000,000 as an individual client.

Alhaji was born in Magburaka town, fifty-four years ago. He is married to a businesswoman and they have eight children. Three of their children are in Senior Secondary School, three in Junior Secondary School and two in primary schools. Alhaji Isssa S. has been selling medicine for over twenty-two years now. This loan will go a long way in helping Alhaji, he told me. Being able to buy the drugs in wholesale alone has saved him enough money, when compared to receiving the drugs from wholesalers.
