Keikura's Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT), a partner of Kiva.org with headquarters in Makeni city in Northern Sierra Leone, is very pleased to present to you this group of teachers from Kenema, a city in Eastern Sierra Leone for the second time. Having repaid their last Kiva loan successfully, they have again come to SMT/Kiva lenders to seek a new loan of 12,400,000 Sierra Leonean Leones. With the help of this new loan, they will be able to meet their immediate financial challenges. At the end of each month, they will then repay the loan, using their monthly salaries. Their bursar is directly responsible for doing the deductions and making the repayment to SMT/Kiva lenders on their behalf.

Dainel is the leader of this group of teachers. Dainel is 52. He is married and has two children who are attending primary and secondary schools. Dainel has been in the teaching profession for 30 years now. He has requested this loan in order to buy house-building materials like corrugated iron zinc, cement, nails, etc. for the completion of a family house he began building with his first Kiva loan.
