Sorie I.'s Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT), a Kiva partner in Makeni, a city in northern Sierra Leone, is very pleased to present this group of teachers from Makeni. Like their counterparts in other regions of Sierra Leone, these borrowers are going to use this loan for different purposes. At the end of each month, they will repay their share of the loan from their monthly salaries. Their school’s bursar is directly responsible for deducting the money from their pay and then repaying SMT/Kiva on their behalf. Sorie I. is the leader of the group. Born about 58 years ago in Kambia, a town in northern Sierra Leone, Sorie is married and the father of 4 children – 3 in primary school and 1 in secondary school. Sorie has been a professional teacher for 39 years now. He has requested this loan to buy home-building materials – iron corrugated sheets, cement, etc. -- for the construction of a family dwelling.
