A loan helped to buy materials to build his house.

Desmond S.l.'s Group's story

Pictured above are teachers of a primary school in Binkolo, a village near Makeni, a city in northern Sierra Leone. This group of teachers has come to SMT/Kiva lenders to seek for a loan in order to meet their immediate financial challenges. At the end of each month, this group of teachers will repay the loan using their monthly salaries. Their school’s bursar is directly responsible for doing the deductions and making the repayments on these teachers’ behalf. Desmond is the leader of this group of teachers. The fifty-five-year old is a native of Binkolo village. He is married to a housewife and the couple has three children who are attending secondary school. Desond has been a teacher for twenty-three years now. He has requested this loan in order to buy house building materials like iron corrugated zincs, nails, bags of cements, etc. for the future construction of a house for his family.
