Gibrilla S.'s Group
This group of teachers has come to SMT, a partner of Kiva's in Makeni, Northern Sierra Leone to request a loan of 7,000,000 Leones for the entire team. With the help of this loan, these teachers will be able to buy or invest in things that they can not afford with their mere salaries alone. At the end of each month, their school’s bursar will deduct their repayments from their salaries and repay SMT/Kiva lenders on their behalf.
Gibrilla is the featured leader of this group. The 46-year-old is a native of one of the villages in Yoni, in Northern Sierra Leone. He is married to a housewife and the couple has 6 children. He has been a professional teacher for 21 years now.
Gibrilla has requested this loan in order to purchase materials for the completion of a family dwelling house he has begun constructing.
