Kentygal I.'s Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT), a partner of Kiva.org in Makeni, Northern Sierra Leone, is pleased to present to you this group of teachers from a primary school in Kenema, Eastern Sierra Leone. Their school was founded in 2002 and currently has an enrollment of 300 pupils and 6 employees.

This is the second loan from Kiva lenders to benefit the teachers of this noble institution. The previous Kiva loan created a lot of improvements in these borrowers' lives. Having repaid that loan successfully, they are requesting a new loan in order to further assist them to meet certain financial challenges that cannot be met by their salaries.

This time, Kentygal is the featured borrower for this group of teachers. Born in Va’aha, Eastern Sierra Leone, 40-year-old Kentygal has been in the teaching profession for 13 years. He is married and has 4 children – 2 in secondary school and 2 in college. Kentygal is going to use his share of this loan to buy house building materials such as corrugated iron, sand, cement, rods, etc. to construct a family home.

In this group: Kentygal I. , Moses A., Mariama M.
