Bockarie's Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT) is very pleased to present to you this group of teachers from Kenema, a city in eastern Sierra Leone. Like their counterparts in other regions, they are requesting a loan from SMT/Kiva lenders in order to meet their immediate financial needs. At the end of each month, they will then repay the loan using their monthly salaries. The leader of this group of teachers is Bockarie. He is 45 years old and is a native of Fobu. He is married and has three children: one in primary school, one in secondary school, and one in college. Bockarie has been a professional teacher for 26 years now. He will use this loan to pay school and college fees for his children and purchase household equipment and house construction materials.

In this group: Bockarie, Jenneeh S., Francis, Kennet S., Henry S., Mustapha, David
