A loan of $3,875 helped a member to pay school and college fees for his children.

Alhaji Mohamed's Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT), a partner of Kiva.org in Makeni, Northern Sierra Leone, is pleased to present to you this group of teachers from one of the secondary schools in Magburaka, a town in northern Sierra Leone.

These hardworking and dedicated teachers have come to SMT, a partner of Kiva.org, to seek a loan of SLL 16,800,000. With the help of this loan, these teachers can embark on some meaningful projects that their mere salaries alone cannot enable them to do. Some of them will use the loan to buy pieces of furniture, others to buy house-building materials, some will buy a piece of land or pay school fees for their children, while some of them will invest the loan in business.

Alhaji is the leader of this group of teachers. He was born in Freetown, Sierra Leone’s capital city, 58 years ago. Alhaji is married to a trader and the couple has seven children who are attending secondary and tertiary institutions. Alhaji has served in the teaching profession for 28 years now. He is going to use his share of the loan to pay school and college fees for his children.

In this group: Alhaji Mohamed, Alhassan Sulaiman, Mohamed A., John Noah , Pastor Ezekiel , Augustine B. , Bai *, Alfred A.
