Ibrahim S.m Sesay's Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT), a partner of Kiva.org in Makeni, northern Sierra Leone, is very please to present to you teachers of the Ahmadiyya Primary School in Mile Ninety-One, a small town in northern Sierra Leone. Ahmadiyya Primary School was founded in 1974 by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission to improve the academic and spiritual well-being of children in the community. The school is staffed by ten teachers.
Ibrahim S.M. S. is a teacher at the school and leader of this group of borrowers. Sixty-year-old Ibrahim was born in Mile Ninety One. He has been in the teaching profession for thirty-eight years now. He is married to a teacher and has ten children, seven of whom are attending schools – primary, secondary and tertiary. Ibrahim has requested this loan in order to pay college fees for his children.
Staff from this institution, like many other school staff within SMT’s operational areas, come to SMT to apply for loans. At the end of each month, these teachers can repay the loan out of their monthly salaries. The institution’s bursar is directly responsible for deducting the repayment and pays SMT on their behalf.

In this group: Ibrahim S.m, Mohamed K., James F., Mohamed M., Rahid S., John H., Amadu M., Mustapha*, Salamatu
