The Sulaiman Kpaka Group's story

These are some of the teachers of the Luke Memorial Primary School in Kenema, a city in eastern Sierra Leone. The school was founded in September 2002 by the community to improve the educational standards of the children in the community. It is currently staffed with 8 teachers and has an enrollment of 373 students.

This is the first loan that teachers of this school have requested from SMT/Kiva lenders. They are requesting a group loan of 4,800,000 SLL. With the help of this loan, these teachers will be able to buy or invest in something that they could not afford with their salaries.

Sulaiman K. is the leader of the group. He is 36 and married with five children who are attending primary and secondary schools. Sulaiman was born in a place called Joi. He has been a teacher for eight years. With his share of this loan, Sulaiman will buy household items such as a fan, radio cassette recorder, a bed, etc.
