Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT) is very pleased to present to you these gentlemen, 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 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.
