Progress I Group's story

This is the Progress Group: Thaimu C., Fatmata M., Fatmata B., and Mahawa C.. They are requesting a loan of Le 3,200,000.00 to help them expand on their businesses.

Thaimu is the leader of this group. He is 42 and married to a businesswoman. They have two children, who are both attending primary school. Thaimu sells medicine and has been in the business for the past twenty years.

He will use this loan to invest in his business by increasing his stock. He usually travels to Freetown (570 miles round trip) to buy stock of medicine. With more goods to sell, Thaimu will not have to travel to Freetown as much and he will also likely see more profit. With increased profit, Thaimu's life will become better. He will be able to pay his children's school fees and improve his family's standard of living.

In this group: Thaimu, Fatmata, Fatmata, Mahawa
