Umarr B.'s story

Pictured above is Umarr, a teacher in one of the secondary schools in Makeni. He has come to Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT), a Kiva partner, to apply for a loan. Like other teachers, he wants this loan in order to meet some financial commitments that his salary alone cannot solve. But with the help of this loan, he can meet these challenges and at the end of each month, he will use his monthly salary to offset the loan.

Umarr was born in Masapirie village, in northern Sierra Leone. The 30-year-old is married to a teacher and has served in the teaching profession for four years now. He has requested this loan in order to buy house-building materials like iron corrugated zinc for the construction of a family house.
