Samuel C's Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT) is very pleased to present to you this group of teachers from one of the primary schools in Magburaka, a town in northern Sierra Leone. They have come to SMT/Kiva lenders to seek a loan of 14,000,000.00 Sierra Leone leones (SLL) in order to meet their immediate financial challenges. At the end of each month, they will repay their loan using their monthly salaries. Their school’s bursar is directly responsible for doing the deductions and payment to SMT/Kiva lender on the teachers’ behalf.
