Thomas Amara's Group's story

In the photo are members of the R.C. Boys Primary School, Lunsar. These are diligent and hardworking teachers who have come to SMT/Kiva to apply for a loan of SLL 10,950,000 in order to help them pay school fees for their children, invest in their businesses, buy pieces of furniture, buy a plot of land, etc.

R.C Boys Primary school was founded in 1995 in Lunsar small-town, northern Sierra Leone by the Roman Catholics to help educate the children of Lunsar and its surrounding villages. It is a government-assisted school with 7 teachers and 297 pupils.

With the help of this loan, the leader of this group, Thomas A. K. will use his share (SLL 1,000,000) to pay school fees for his children. Born in Lunsar, Thomas is a 62-year-old man who is married to a nurse and they have six children who are attending schools. Thomas has been in the teaching profession for forty years now.
