A loan of $1,750 helped a member to pay school fees for his children.


Abdul's Group's story

Pictured here are primary school teachers from the village of Massesebeh, in Northern Sierra Leone. This group of teachers have come to SMT, a partner of Kiva.org to apply for a loan in order to solve their immediate financial challenges. Some will use their share of the loan to buy a piece of land, others to build a family dwelling house, some will invest in businesses, pay school fees for their children, etc. And at the end of each month, they will repay the loan using their monthly salaries. Their school’s bursar is directly responsible for doing the deductions and making the repayments on their behalf. Abdul is the leader of this group of teachers. The forty seven years old is a native of Mile-Ninety-One. He is married to a student and the couple has four children – one in primary school and three in secondary. Abdul has been a professional teacher for twenty-five years now. He has requested this loan in order to pay school fees for his children.

In this group: Abdul , Moses , Peter L. , Solomon Y., Adama , Joseph S.
