Amie's Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT), a partner of Kiva.org that is based in Makeni, Northern Sierra Leone, is very pleased to present to you this group of teachers from Kenema, a city in Eastern Sierra Leone. These teachers have come to SMT to request a loan of 16,200,000.00 Leones from SMT/Kiva lenders. With this loan, they will be able to meet their immediate financial constraints. They can easily repay the loan, with the help of their monthly salaries. Their school’s bursar is directly responsible for doing the deductions and making the repayments on their behalf.

Jeneba is their featured leader. A native of Jormukafebu, in Eastern Sierra Leone, Jeneba is 50 year old. She is married to a teacher, and the couple has six children, three of whom are attending secondary and tertiary educational institutions. Jeneba has requested this loan in order to buy bags of cement for the construction of a family dwelling house.

In this group: Amie , Jeneba , Melrose I, Musu , Jamatu , Angella S.
