David F.'s Group's story

Pictured above are primary school teachers from Koidu, a city in Eastern Sierra Leone. Teachers and other monthly salaried workers frequently go to Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT), a partner of Kiva.org., to apply for loans. With the help of these loans, they are better equipped to accomplish things that their salaries do not permit. For example, some will use this loan to pay school fees for their children, others will buy house-building materials for the construction of family dwellings, some will invest the loan in his spouse's business, etc. At the end of each month, their school’s bursar will deduct the repayment from their salaries and repay SMT/Kiva lenders.

David is the leader of this group of teachers. A native of Koardu village in Eastern Sierra Leone, this 60-year-old is married to a housewife and the father of four children – three in secondary school and one in college. David, who has 38 years of experience in the teaching profession, has requested this loan in order to buy house-building materials – corrugated iron zinc, cement, etc. - for the construction of a family dwelling.
