A loan of $2,150 helped a member to pay school fees for his children.

Abdul R.'s Group's story

Pictured above are primary school teachers from one of the schools in Waterloo, a small town near Sierra Leone’s capital city, Freetown. This group of teachers, like their colleagues in SMT's other operational areas, has come to SMT for "salary loans." With the help of these loans, they are empowered to meet certain financial challenges that their salaries, alone, do not let them meet. With the help of a loan they can meet their immediate financial needs, and at the end of each month they can repay the loan, using their monthly salaries.

Abdul is the leader of this group of teachers. The 45-year-old is a native of Manolo Koya village. He is married to a businesswoman and the couple has four children. Abdul has been a professional teacher for many years. He has requested this loan in order to pay school fees for his children.

In this group: Abdul R., Idrissa , Ibrahim K., Sulaiman , Ismeal , Musa
