Mohamed's Group's story

Here are staff members of an organisation in Kabala town, northern Sierra Leone. Though they receive salaries at the end of each month, they will still like to get a loan in order to embark on meaningful projects that they can not embark on with their bare salaries alone. Some of them will use the loan to buy a plot of land for the purpose of constructing a house in the future; some to pay school fees for their children; others to buy house furniture and others will invest theirs in a petty business. At the end of each month, their finance officer will deduct their repayment amounts out of their salaries and repays Kiva.

Mohamed M. () is the leader of this group. He is born in a place called Wara Bafodia, which is about thirty-two miles away from Kabala town. He is now age 58, married to two wives and they have twelve children between the ages of one month – thirty years. Mohamed has served his organisation for seventeen years. He will use this loan to meet his child’s college fees and other college charges.

In this group: Mohamed , Koliya, Mamodu, Abdulai Foday, Abubakarr
