Friend Sisters Group's story

Fanta is the featured leader of this group of entrepreneurs. She was born in Gbense Chiefdon, in eastern Sierra Leone, 49 years ago. She is married to a driver and the couple has 2 children who attend school. Fanta has been selling used clothing and cloth for 4 years. This is not the first loan that Fanta and her group members have applied for from SMT/Kiva lenders. Previous SMT/Kiva lender loans were a huge success in the businesses and personal lives of these borrowers. Having successfully repaid their last loan, they are requesting a new loan to further expand their respective businesses, increase sales and consequently improve their living conditions. Fanta will use her share of the loan (800,000 SLL) to buy a large quantity of used clothing and cloth.
