A loan of $1,100 helped a member to buy items they currently lack for their vending stalls.

Try Hard Group's story

This group, called Try Hard, led by Rebecca S., consists of three other members: Mabinty K., Fatmata K. and Demoh S., all local entrepreneurs in Makeni, the Northern Province headquarter town. This group has been with SMT for more than four years now, always repaying its loans on time before seeking a new one. Their businesses prosper as a result of the loans they receive from Kiva through SMT, enabling them to expand and acquire items that were previously lacking in their stalls, the same objective of their current loan request.

The leader of this group, Rebecca S., 45, is married with three children, two in secondary school and the eldest in college. Her husband, a lecturer, is primarily responsible for their schooling as tradition maintains, but Rebecca also contributes greatly towards their education and welfare. She has been selling local produce including ground-nuts, palm-oil, pepper, and onions at the town's main lorry pack for the past 20 years now.

In this group: Rebecca, Mabinty, Fatmata, Demoh
