A loan of $900 helped a member to buy palm oil, gari (cassava grits), honey, dishes, etc. to add to her current stock.


Good Sababu Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT) is very pleased to present to you the members of the "Good Sababu" group for the second time. This group of entrepreneurs is applying for a second SMT/Kiva lenders loan. With the help of their previous Kiva lenders loan, these small-scale entrepreneurs expanded their business inventories. This increased their level of sales and profit-to-sales-margins.

Featured leader Isatu, for example, was able to buy cattle and a piece of land out of the profit she made from her business. Today, her greatest challenge is to earn enough to build a house for her family. Isatu is currently working hard to realize her dream: providing her children with the best education she can provide. She has reapplied for this new loan in order to expand the size of her inventory. She will buy more palm oil, gari (cassava grits), honey, dishes, etc. to add to her current stock.

In this group: Isatu, Mariama, Gbassay
