John A.s.'s Group's story

These are teachers from the Benevolent Islamic Primary School, Magburaka. This school was built by the Benevolent Mission in 1982. It has a total of 20 staff and 656 pupils. This group of teachers has come to SMT/Kiva lenders to seek a loan of 13,000,000 SLL. With the help of this loan, some of these teachers will start a small business and those who are already running small businesses will invest the loan into 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 for themselves to pursue further studies. Others will use their loan in home building projects. With their monthly salaries, they will gradually repay their loan to SMT. John A.S. K. is the Deputy Head Teacher at the school. The 40-year-old has been in the teaching profession for eleven years now. John is married to a businesswoman and the two of them have four children together. With this loan, John will buy house equipment like a refrigerator and a generator.
