Mamudu E.'s Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT) is very pleased to present to you this group of teachers from the eastern city of Koidu/Kono. This group of teachers is among the first group of applicants to have received a loan from SMT/Kiva lenders in the city. Like their counterparts in other regions of the country, they have applied for a loan of 21,800,000 SLL in order to meet their immediate financial needs. At the end of each month, through their school’s bursar, they will repay the loan using their monthly salaries.

The leader of this group is Mamudu. The 50-year-old was born in Kono. He is married and has seven children – four in primary school and three in secondary school. Having served in the teaching profession for 27 years now, Mamudu is requesting a loan of 1,900,000 SLL in order to renovate his house by buying house-building materials like bags of cement and paying workers, etc.
