Sahr's Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT) is very pleased to present to you this group of primary school teachers from the city of Koidu, in Eastern Sierra Leone. Their leader is 51 year old Sahr, who is pictured on the left.

They came to Kiva through SMT to request for a loan of 6,000,000 Sierra Leonean Leones. With this loan, they will be empowered to tackle financial constrains that they wouldn't otherwise be able to tackle with the monthly salaries.

Sahr has been in the teaching profession for 28 years. He is married to a businesswoman and they have five children – two in primary school and three in secondary school. Sahr has requested a loan to buy household furniture for his home.

In this group: Sahr, Cicilia, Tamba
