Mohamed's story

This is 45-year-old Mohamed S.. Born in a village call Malal Mara, in northern Sierra Leone, this husband and father of eight children is a businessman with a small-scale business in Makeni city. His wife is a businesswoman too and three of his children are attending either primary or secondary schools.

Mohamed has been selling shoes for twenty-two years now. His shoes business has enjoyed a massive growth, thanks to previous SMT/Kiva loans. Nevertheless, he is still not complacent; having repaid his last loan successfully, he now wants a new loan of SLL 3,000,000 in order to further improve his business.

With the help of this SLL 3,000,000 loan, Mohamed will be able to buy at least a bale of shoes to add to his stock.
