A loan of $2,275 helped a member to buy house building materials and to invest in an agricultural project.

Rashid S.'s Group's story

These are teachers of the T.D.E.C Primary School, Magburaka, which was founded in 1959. The school is staffed with 327 pupils and seventeen teachers. Out of the seventeen teachers, these ten have applied for a loan from Kiva lenders through SMT.

This is the first loan members of this institution are accessing from Kiva lenders through SMT. With the help of this loan, some members of staff will start a small business and those who are already running small businesses will invest the loan in their business. Some of the staff members will be using the loan to buy pieces of furniture, others to pay either for their children’s education or pay for themselves to pursue further studies. Others will use their loan in home building projects.

Fifty-one-year-old Rashid S. K. (whose photo is attached at the top left) is the leader of this group. He was born in a place called Maworr and is married with four children. Rashid will use part of his loan to buy house building materials and invest part in an agricultural project.

In this group: Rashid S., Joseph S., James E.s., Idriss M., Hawa, Marie Nella, Memunatu E., John T., Hamid, Ramatu M.
