Young Tourists Group's story

Amidu K. is the leader of the Young Tourists, a microfinance borrowing group, who are now applying for their fourth loan from Kiva. Amidu and the other group members, Adamsay S., Alie K. and Mohammed K., all found that their previous loans helped them expand their businesses and improve their quality of life. As the leader of this group, Amidu has ensured past loans were paid off and that extra capital was shared with other members of the community. He was born in Makeni City and is 32 years old, married to a local slipper seller, and has three children. He sells a variety of products, such as powders, tooth brushes, pastes, and soaps, within his community. Amidu is anticipating that he can successfully expand his business. Therefore, the Young Tourists are now requesting a loan of $1375, which will be used to purchase a wider variety of products to sell to the members of his community.
