A loan of $2,175 helped a member pay college fees for his children.


Tamba Alex's Group's story

Tamba is the leader of this group of teachers and has been a teacher for 30 years. 59-year-old Tamba is married to a teacher and the couple has eight children who are in college. Tamba and his colleague teachers have come to SMT, a partner of Kiva.org to apply for a loan. With the help of this loan, they will be able to pay school fees for their children, invest in business and buy pieces of furniture. At the end of each month, their school’s bursar deducts the repayment from their salaries and repays SMT/Kiva on their behalf. Tamba is going to use his share of the loan to pay college fees for his children.

In this group: Tamba Alex, Sahr Dominic , John Tamba , Stephen K. , Kenneth , James Mbamusa, Sahr Emmanuel
