Alfred B.'s Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust, a partner of Kiva.org in Makeni, is very pleased to present to you this group of teachers from Kenema city, in eastern Sierra Leone. They have applied for a loan of 9,500,000 Sierra Leone leones (SLL) from Kiva field partner SMT. With the help of this loan, they are going to solve most of their immediate financial needs, and at the end of each month, they repay SMT/Kiva using their monthly salaries. Their school’s bursar is directly responsible for deducting the repayments and paying SMT/Kiva on their behalf.

Alfred is the leader of this group of teachers. Born in Sumbuya, southern Sierra Leone, the 57-year-old has served in the teaching profession for 36 years. He is married and has three children: two in secondary school and one no longer attending school. Alfred has requested this loan in order to pay school fees for his children.

In this group: Alfred B. , Julius T. , Messie P., Edwin P. , Joseph J. , Pamela M. , Brima C. , Joseph A.g.
