A loan helped to pay school fees for his children.

Jinnah E.'s Group's story

Jinnah is the featured leader of this group of school teachers. He was born in Gbeika village, in Eastern Sierra Leone 50 years ago. He is married to a nurse and the couple has four children who are attending primary and secondary schools. Jinnah has served in the teaching profession for 33 years now. Jinnah will use his share of the loan to pay school fees for his children. SMT/Kiva lenders loans designed specifically for teachers are very helpful as they enable them to buy or invest in items that their mere salaries cannot let them do. But with the help of this loan, some of them will be able to invest in business, pay school fees for their children, buy household furniture or house-building materials, etc. and at the end of each month, they 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.
