A loan of $925 helped a member to buy bales of used clothes to add to his business.


Road To Success Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT), a partner of Kiva.org in Makeni, northern Sierra Leone, is very pleased to present to you members of the “Road To Success” group. These are small scale entrepreneurs who have come to SMT/Kiva lenders to apply for a loan of 2,000,000.00 Sierra Leonean Leones (SLL) each in order to invest in their respective businesses.

Mohamed is again the featured leader of this group; his former group member has decided not to collect a new loan this time, so Mohamed has brought a new member into the loan group. Mohamed is pleased to inform Kiva lenders that his previous Kiva loan has been very helpful to him, enabling him to buy a large quantity of used bags to add to his business. He has requested this new loan in order to buy bales of used clothes to add to his business.

In this group: Mohamed, Alfred C.
