Hope Sisters Group's story

Greetings are coming to you from members of the "Hope Sisters" group from Makeni, northern Sierra Leone. Members of the "Hope Sisters" group are very grateful to Kiva lenders for the loan they have just repaid. With the help of that loan, they were able to expand their respective businesses, made more sales and consequently improved their living conditions. Having repaid the loan successfully, they are again requesting a new loan in order to further improve their businesses. Featured leader Fatu, will again use her share of the loan to buy a large quantity of margi (used to give sauce a sweet taste), salt, onions, etc., to add to her current ones.

In this group: Fatu , Saidu , Aliamatu , Bikishu
