A loan of $700 helped a member to pay for college tuition for her children.


Henrietta F.'s Group's story

Pictured here are teachers from one of the secondary schools in Lunsar, a town in Northern Sierra Leone. These teachers have come to SMT, a partner of Kiva.org, to apply for a loan of 3,000,000 Sierra Leonean leones in order to meet their immediate financial challenges. At the end of each month, they will repay the loan from their monthly salaries. Their school’s bursar is directly responsible for making the repayment on their behalf.
