Thank You Jesus Group's story

Isatu K. is the leader of this group of entrepreneurs. Isatu was born in Makeni city about thirty-two years ago. She is married to a soldier and the couple has five children, two in secondary school and three in primary school.

For twenty years now, Isatu has been selling market food – palm oil (the most popular cooking oil), salt, Maggi (cubes used to give sauce a sweet taste), and poultry. This is the second loan that Isatu and her group members have applied for from SMT/Kiva lenders. With the help of this new loan, they will be able to further expand their businesses, make more sales and further improve their living conditions.

Isatu will use her share of the loan (SLL 800,000) to expand her business; she will buy palm oil, salt, Maggi cubes and poultry in large quantity to add to her business inventory.
