A loan of $500 helped a member to buy firewood, biscuits, flour, cooking oil, etc.


John's Group's story

Thanks to the Kiva loan that this group of entrepreneurs received from Kiva lenders some months back, they have been able to repay the loan successfully. The loan had a huge impact on the lives and businesses of these women. They added more inventory to their business, which helped them attract many more customers.

Having repaid the previous loan, the SMT credit officer deems it fit to increase these borrowers' loan amounts by 200,000 SLL per person. With a new loan of 700,000 SLL each (for a total of 2,100,000), they will be able to further develop their businesses, make more sales and improve their living conditions.

In this group: Rosaline, Adama , Mabinty
