A loan of $1,800 helped a member to pay education fees for his children.

Umaro's Group's story

Pictured here are teachers from one of the primary schools in Kabala, a town in northern Sierra Leone. This group of teachers has come to SMT, a Kiva partner, to apply for a loan of 7,800,000 Leones for the entire team. Umaro, the featured leader, has requested a loan in order to pay school fees for his children. Umaro is a 54-year-old native of the Mateboi village and has been a professional teacher for 30yrs. He is married to a nurse and has 4 children, 3 in primary school and 1 in college.

With this loan the group will be able to meet their immediate financial needs and will repay the loan using their monthly salaries. The school’s bursar is directly responsible for deductions and making the repayments on their behalf.

In this group: Umaro, Assie E., Makallay, Alusine, Alfred
