Joseph S.'s Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust is very pleased to present to you this group of teachers from Magburaka, a town in Northern Sierra Leone. This group of teachers has come to SMT and Kiva lenders to seek a loan of 10,600,000 Sierra Leonean Leones in order to solve their immediate financial needs. At the end of each month, they will use their salaries to repay the loan. Their school’s bursar is directly responsible for deducting the repayment amount from their salaries and pays SMT/Kiva lenders on their behalf.

Joseph (who is pictured second from right) is the leader of this group of teachers. The 33 year old was born in Magburaka. He is married to a teacher and the couple has three children – one in primary school and two in secondary school. Joseph has been a professional teacher for 15 years now. He has requested for this loan in order to buy house building materials like bags of cements, iron rods, etc. for the construction of a family house.

In this group: Joseph S., Hamid , Margeret M., John T. , Memunatu E., Moses R. , Hawa , James E.s.
