Tamaraneh Iii Group's story

Musa (pictured on the right) is the leader of this group, called Tamaraneh III. This is a Temne word meaning: "Let's help one another." He was born in Magburaka, and he is 30 years of age. Musa is married to a business woman who sells pastes, toothbrushes, creams, and so on. Musa sells cigarettes. They have two children; one is in primary school and the other is still a baby. Musa was able to feed his children and mum, and pay school fees for his child out of the proceeds from his business. With this new loan, Musa is expecting a boom in his business because of the increase in capital the loan will provide.


The members of this group are all business people in Magburaka town, the main town in the Tonkolili District. They now request a new loan to further strengthen their businesses. This is their third loan from Kiva through SMT. They have completely and successfully repaid their previous loans.

In this group: Musa, Osman, Fatmata
