Makeni, Sierra Leone / Food Market

A loan of $1,050 helped a member to buy onions, salt, pepper, etc. to add to her current stock.


Wan Word Movement Group's story

Members of the “Wan Word Movement" group are grateful to Kiva lenders for the previous Kiva loan that they received. With the help of their just concluded loan, these entrepreneurs were able to expand on the sizes and qualities of their respective businesses. This led to an increase in sales and project-to-sale-margins.

Having finished repaying their last loan successfully, they have reapplied for a new loan of 1,500,000 Sierra Leonean Leones for each. This new loan will further enhance their respective businesses.

Featured leader Aminata will again use her share of the loan to buy market food: onions, salt, pepper, rice, Maggi (used to give sauce a sweet taste), etc. in bulk to add to her business.

In this group: Aminata, Hawanatu, Mbalu
