A loan of $1,950 helped a member to pay college fees for her child.

Mohamed M.'s Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT) is very pleased to present to you this group of teachers from Kenema, a city in Eastern, Sierra Leone. They have applied for a loan of 8,400,000 leones from SMT/Kiva lenders in order to meet their immediate financial needs. Some of these teachers will use their share of the loan to buy house building materials; some will use it to pay school fees for their children and so on. Using their monthly salaries, they will gradually repay the loan. Their school’s bursar is directly responsible for making the repayments on their behalf.

Fatmata is the leader of this group of teachers. She is 44 year old, a native of the village of Gorahun in Eastern, Sierra Leone. She is married and has one child who is in college. Fatmata has been a teacher for 20 years now. She will use her share of the loan to pay college fees for her child.

In this group: Mohamed M., Mohamed M. , Ansu Dominic, Fatmata W. , Mohamed S.a.
