S.i.c.pri Sch.badafa Group's story
Pictured here are primary school teachers from the city of Koidu, in eastern Sierra Leone. This group of teachers has come to SMT, a partner of Kiva.org based in Makeni, to apply for a loan of SLL 5,500,000.00 for the entire team in order to meet their most immediate and most pressing financial needs. At the end of each month, they can easily repay the loan using their monthly salaries. It is their school’s bursar who is directly responsible for taking the deductions and making the repayments on their behalf. Menday is the name of the featured leader of this team. A native of Foredugu, the 48-year-old is married to a teacher and the couple has three kids attending school. Menday has been a school teacher for 21 years now. He has requested this loan in order to buy house building materials like iron corrugated sheets, etc. for the construction of a dwelling house for his family. Also included in the right of the photo is loan officer Alpha, posing with the borrowers.
