Henry B.'s Group's story

These eight teachers work in a primary school located in Bafodia village, near the township of Kabala, northern Sierra Leone. This school was founded in 1987 to improve education in the community. Teachers of this noble institution have come to SMT, a partner of Kiva.org in Makeni, northern Sierra Leone, to seek a loan.

This is the first loan that the teachers of this school have received from SMT/Kiva lenders. The group has requested for a loan of SLL 7,200,000. With the help of this loan, these teachers are in a better position to buy or invest in something that their salary cannot let them do.

Henry is the leader of the group. He is 63 years old and was born in Kambalia. Henry is married and has eight children. He has requested for this loan in order to pay school fees for his children and to buy household furniture.

In this group: Henry B., Umaru, Iye, James B., Joseph O., Abdul , Franko B., Sorie
