Abu's story

This is forty-five-year-old Abu. Born in Makeni city, Abu is a husband and a father. He is married to a trader. Abu wants a loan of 5,000,000 SLL in order to invest in his business. He sells clothing such as jeans, blouses, t-shirts, vests, sneakers, and sandals. Abu has been a businessman for 19 years now. However, his business has been growing at a very slow pace due to the lack of sufficient capital. Thus he has come to SMT and Kiva lenders to apply for a loan in order to expand his business. With this loan, he will travel to neighboring Guinea and buy the above mentioned items at wholesale prices to add to his business.
