These are small scale businesswomen in Lunsar, a town in northern Sierra Leone. They have come to SMT, a partner of Kiva.org to seek a loan of 500,000.00 Sierra Leonean Leones (SLL) for each to be able to expand their businesses. With a loan of 500,000.00 SLL, they will be able to add more stocks in their businesses, make more sales, and make more profit. Consequently, they will be able to improve their standard of living by sending their children to school, feed and clothe them.
