A loan of $950 helped a member to buy women's dresses and shoes to add to her business inventory.

Quick Action Group's story

Dora F. is the leader of this group of entrepreneurs. Dora was born in Makeni, a city in northern Sierra Leone, 39 years ago. She is married to a businessman and the couple has five children – one in primary school and three in secondary school. The other is not of school-going age.

This is the first loan that Dora and her group members have applied for from SMT/Kiva lenders. With the help of this loan, they will be able to expand their businesses, make more sales and consequently improve their living conditions.

Dora, who has had 15 years of experience in selling women’s dresses and shoes, is going to use her share of the loan (SLL 800,000) to buy more women's dresses and shoes to add to her business inventory.

In this group: Dora, Zainab, Aminata, Isatu, Nyamakoro
