A loan of $475 helped a member to buy cartons of fresh fish to add to her current ones.


Five Traders Group's story

Mamusu is the leader of this group of entrepreneurs. Mamusu was born in Mankneh village in Northern Sierra Leone about 27 years ago. She is married to a businessman and the couple has 2 children attending school. For many years now, Mamusu has been selling fresh fish.

This is the second loan that Mamusu and her group members have applied for from SMT/Kiva lenders. The first loan made a lot of improvements in their lives and businesses. Having finished repaying that loan successfully, they are again requesting a new loan of 500,000 Sierra Leonean leones each to further expand on their respective businesses. Mamusu is going to use her share of this loan to buy cartons of fresh fish to add to her current ones.

In this group: Mamusu, Marie, Aminata, Adamsay
