A loan of $2,225 helped a member to buy palm oil, rice and other market foodstuffs.


Musa's Group's story

Meet the teachers of a primary school in Lunsar, a small town in Northern Sierra Leone! This school was built in 1986 to promote education within Lunsar and villages surrounding Lunsar. This is the first loan that teachers of this school are accessing from SMT/Kiva lenders. With the help of this loan, some of these borrowers will invest in their businesses, and others will buy pieces of furniture. Some pay school fees for their children, some will use it to buy a plot of land and so on.

Musa K. is the headmaster of the school and leader of this group. He is age 45. He was born in Port Loko, a town in Northern Sierra Leone. He is married with four children: one of his children is a baby and three are in secondary school. Musa has been a teacher for 28 years now.

Musa will hand over his share of the loan to his wife who is a petty businesswoman. His wife sells palm oil, rice and other market foodstuffs. This will definitely boost his wife’s business so that she, too, will be in a better position to contribute significantly towards running the home.

In this group: Musa , Ibrahim, Samuel Issa, Lamrana K., Wilson B., Abdulai*, Fuad S., Marie, Joseph F.
