Vandi M.b's Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT) is very pleased to present to you with this group of leachers, all of whom live in Kenema, a city in eastern Sierra Leone. Like their counterparts in other parts of our country, they are requesting a loan from SMT/Kiva lenders to meet their immediate financial needs. At the end of each month, they will repay a portion of the loan using their salaries. The leader of this group is Vandi, who is 45 years old and a native of the town of Fobu. He is married and has three children – one in primary school, one in secondary and one in college. He has been a teacher for 26 years and is applying for this loan to pay his children's school/college fees, buy items for his home and buy materials to improve and expand his house.

In this group: Vandi M.b, Feima , Massah, Tainger , Musa , Mustapha A., Abib T, Mary E., Abu
