Sahr Emmanuel's Group
With the help of this loan, this group of able and dedicated teachers will be able to meet their immediate financial challenges. At the end of each month, they will repay the loan, using their monthly salaries. It is their school’s bursar who is directly responsible for doing the deductions and making the repayments on their behalf.
Sahr (pictured in the middle) is the featured leader of this group. The 54-year-old is a native of Sagbe, in eastern Sierra Leone. He is married to a teacher and the couple have eight children, five of whom are attending secondary schools. Sahr has served in the teaching profession for 33 years now. He has requested this loan in order to pay school fees for his children and to use the rest to buy house-building materials.
