Tatasuthekeh Group's story

Sallay K. (pictured second from left) is the leader of this group of entrepreneurs. Sallay was born in Mile 91, a small town in Northern Sierra Leone. She is married with five children. Her husband is a businessman and her children are attending school – two in primary school and three in secondary school. Sallay has been a businesswoman for seventeen years now. Currently, Sallay sells ready-to-wear-clothes, shoes and locally produced food items. With a loan of SLL 1,000,000 she will buy the above-mentioned items wholesale to add to her current stock. This is not the first loan that members of this group have enjoyed from SMT/Kiva lenders. Previous Kiva loans have created significant impacts in the lives of these borrowers. Having repaid their last loan successfully, they are again seeking a new loan of SLL 1,000,000. With the help of this loan, they will be able to further expand their businesses, make more sales, and consequently improve their living conditions.

In this group: Sallay, Mamoud, Yeabu, Hawa
