A loan of $600 helped a member to buy a larger quantity of palm-oil than previously.


Lion Group's story

Thanks to the first loan that you helped members of the "Lion" group with, their businesses have seen a lot of growth over the months. They were able to add more goods to their respective businesses. This thus led to an increase in sales and in profit. As a consequent, these guys' living conditions improved to a new height.

Having done repaying their previous loan successfully, they are again requesting a new loan in the same amount as the previous, i.e. 500,000 Sierra Leonean Leones for each. This will again enable them to further increase their business inventories. Ibrahim will this time buy only palm-oil. But this time, he will be able to buy a larger quantity than he bought previously.

In this group: Ibrahim, Zainab, Safiatu, Marie, Isatu
