Maslandeneh Group's story

Pictured here are members of the “Maslandeneh” group. They are small-scale businesswomen based in Magburaka, a town in northern Sierra Leone. They are seeking a loan of SLL 800,000 for each to enable them to further expand their businesses. Consequently, they will make more profit and improve their standard of living. The leader of this group is Baby M.. Baby is aged thirty-seven and she was born in Matotoka village. She is married with four children. Her husband is a trader and her children are attending primary and secondary schools. For many years now, Baby has been selling palm oil (the most popular cooking oil), and ready-to-wear-clothes. With her share of this loan, she will buy clothes, undervests, etc. in large quantity. (Attached to this photo is a snapshot of a borrower who was not able to be present for the group photo.)

In this group: Baby, Fatmata, Mamusu, Adamsay
