Saidu's Group's story

These are teachers of a primary school based in Kenema city. This school was founded in 1992. Teachers of the school have come to SMT, a partner of Kiva.org in Makeni, Northern Sierra Leone, to seek a loan. They requested a loan of 8,700,000 Sierra Leonean Leones (SLL) for the entire group. With the help of this loan, these teachers are in a better position to buy or invest in something that their mere salaries cannot let them do. Saidu is the leader of the group. He is age thirty-five. He was born in Sumbuya, in Eastern Sierra Leone. He is married and has one child who is attending primary school. Saidu has been in the teaching profession for twelve years now. He has requested this loan in order to pay college fees for himself and school fees for his child.
