Tamaraneh Group's story

Greetings are coming to you from members of the Tamaraneh group. They are very pleased to inform you that their previous Kiva loan has made a huge impact in their businesses and personal lives. With the help of that loan, they were able to add to their business inventories. This led to an increase in sales and profit. They used the profit they made to repay the loan, feed their children and send them to school.

Having repaid the previous loan successfully, they are requesting a new loan now, of SLL 700,000 for each member, in order to further improve on the quality and quantity of the respective businesses.

The featured leader, Aminata, is going to use her share of the loan to buy a large quantity of fish to add to her current stock of fish. Though Aminata faces a number of challenges in her business, such as times of poor sales, and fish do spoil within a very short period, she has made very many successes, as well. She is able to provide food for her children and support them in their educational pursuit. Aminata dreams of expanding her business, and thanks to Kiva loans, she is on the verge of achieving her dream.
