Fight For Poor Group's story

Hawa is the leader of this group of entrepreneurs. She is fifty years old and was born in Yoni village. She is married to a nurse, and the couple has four children, one of whom is still attending primary school. For over ten years now, Hawa has been selling palm oil (the most popular cooking oil), foofoo (a food made out of cassava roots) and groundnuts.


Hawa and her group members have applied for a loan from SMT, with 1,000,000 SLL to go to each member. Hawa will use her share of the loan to buy gallons of palm oil, foofoo and groundnuts in bulk. With the help of this loan, Hawa’s group will be able to expand their businesses, make more sales and consequently improve their living conditions.
