Success Club Group's story

In the photo are members of the “Success Club” group. They are small scale businesspeople based in Magburaka, a town in northern Sierra Leone. The leader of this group is 28-year-old Osman. Osman sells toothpastes, batteries, biscuits, sardines, etc.

This is not the first time that Osman and his group members have benefited from a loan from SMT/Kiva lenders. With the help of a previous Kiva loan, they were able to expand their businesses both in size and quality. Having repaid their last loan successfully, they are again requesting for a new loan of 800,000 SLL for each in the group in order to further expand their respective businesses, make more profit and consequently improve on their standard of living.

Leader of the group, Osman, will use his share of the loan to buy toothpastes, batteries, biscuits, sardines, etc. in large quantity to add to his business.

In this group: Osman T., Mariatu, Fullamusu, Ayuba A., Amadu
