A loan of $1,125 helped a member to increase inventory by purchasing additional plastic containers.


God Bless Business Group's story

Salamatu is the leader of this group of entrepreneurs. Salamatu was born in the town of Lunsar, in Northern Sierra Leone, 28 years ago. She is married to a trader. She and her husband have two children, who attend primary schools. For 15 years now, Salamatu has been selling plastic bowls and other plastic containers.

This would not the first loan these entrepreneurs have received from Kiva lenders. A previous Kiva loan created a huge impact in the lives and businesses of these borrowers. With the help of that loan, their businesses increased in size and improved in quality. Sales and profits also increased for these borrowers as a result of the increase in their business inventories.

Having successfully repaid that prior loan, they are again requesting a loan, this time in the amount of 1,200,000 SLL each (4,800,000 SLL total), to further improve and expand their businesses. Salamatu, the leader of this group, plans on using her share of the loan proceeds to buy more plastic containers in order to add to her current stock.
