John S. Y.'s Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust is very pleased to present to you this group of teachers from Allen Town, an outskirt of Freetown, Sierra Leone’s capital city. This group of teachers has come to SMT, a partner of Kiva in Makeni, Northern Sierra Leone to apply for a loan of 8,300,000 Sierra Leonean Leones for the entire group in order to meet their immediate financial challenges. Teachers of this institution, like their colleagues in other institutions, come to SMT to apply for loans. With the help of these loans, they can meet certain financial needs that their mere salaries cannot let them meet.

The featured leader of this group is John. The 47 year old is a native of Gbendembu village. He is married and has four children attending schools. John is a teacher and has been in the teaching profession for many years now. He has requested this loan in order to buy household furniture to decorate his house. At the end of each month, he will repay the loan, using his monthly salary.

In this group: John S. Y., Mahmud A., Kaprie , Alfred G.
