Francis F.'s Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT) is very pleased to present to you this group of teachers from Grafton, on the outskirts of Freetown, Sierra Leone's capital city. With the help of this loan, this group of teachers will be able to buy or invest in things that their mere salaries alone cannot let them do. And at the end of each month, they will repay the loan using their monthly salaries. Their school’s bursar is directly responsible for making the deductions and the repayments on their behalf.

Francis is the leader of this group. The 55-year-old is a native of Kailahun town. He is married to a housewife and the couple has six children. Francis has requested this loan in order to buy house-building materials like cement and iron corrugated zincs in order to augment his current house-building project.

In this group: Francis F., David , Fouad C. , Makotor Assanatu
