A loan of $700 helped a member to pay his college fees.


David M.s.'s Group's story

Pictured here are teachers from on the primary school in Jui, an outskirt of Freetown, Sierra Leone’s capital city. These teachers have come to Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT), a partner of Kiva.org to request a loan of 1,500,000 Sierra Leonean Leones each in order to solve certain financial challenges they are encountering. And at the end of each month, using their monthly salaries, these teachers can repay the loan. Their school’s bursar is directly responsible for making the repayments on their behalf. David is the featured leader of this group. A native of Buedu, the 52 year old man is married to a trader and the couple has 4 school going children. A teacher for many years now, David is pursuing further studies in college. He has requested this loan in order to pay his college fees.
