A loan of $1,000 helped a member to pay his college fees.


Foday B's Group's story

Pictured above are teachers from one of the primary schools in Affia, a village near Kabala town, in northern Sierra Leone. This group of teachers has come to SMT, a partner of Kiva.org based in Makeni, northern Sierra Leone, to request a loan of 4,300,000 Leones for the entire group. With the help of this loan, this group of teachers will be empowered to meet their immediate financial challenges. And, at the end of each month, they can easily repay the loan using their monthly salaries. Their school’s bursar is directly responsible for doing the deductions and making the repayments on their behalf.

Salifu is the leader of this group. The 41 year old is a native of Affia village. He is married and has four children attending school. Salifu has served in the teaching profession for 12 years now. However, he is pursuing further studies. He has therefore requested for this loan in order to pay his college fees.

In this group: Foday B, Salifu , Samuel S, Morlia
