Salone Microfinance Trust is very pleased to present to you this group of teachers from eastern Sierra Leone. This group of hard working and dedicated teachers has come to SMT, a partner of Kiva.org base in Makeni, northern Sierra Leone to request a loan of 11,100,000 Leones for the entire group. With the help of this loan, each of these teachers will be able to meet his immediate financial needs and at the end of each month, he will repay the loan, using his monthly salary. The bursar is directly responsible for doing the deductions and making the repayment on behalf of each teacher.
