Musa's Group's story

Pictured here is the staff of a very reputable company in Tonkolili district, in northern Sierra Leone. This group of colleagues have come to SMT, a partner of Kiva.org based in Makeni city, to apply for a loan. With the help of these loans, they will be able to do or invest in things that their salaries alone cannot let them do or invest in. For example, some will be able to buy pieces of household furniture or house building materials, pay school fees for their children, invest in agriculture or in business, etc. At the end of each month, their company’s financial officer will repay the loan on their behalf.

Musa is the leader of this team. The 42-year-old is a native of Port Loko. He is married to a businesswoman, and they have one child who is attending secondary school. Musa has requested this loan in order to buy house building materials for the completion of a house he had begun. He will buy iron, corrugated zincs, board, paints, cements, etc.
