Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT), a partner of Kiva, based in the northern city of Makeni, is very pleased to present to you this group of able and dedicated teachers, located in the small town of Waterloo, near Freetown, Sierra Leone’s capital city.

This group of teachers has applied for a loan of SLL 13,200,000 from SMT/Kiva lenders in order to meet their immediate and most pressing needs. And at the end of each month, they can repay the loan, using their monthly salaries. It is their school’s bursar who is directly responsible for doing the deductions and making the repayments on their behalf.

Hamid has served in the teaching profession for ten years now. He has requested this loan in order to buy building materials for the improvement of his dwelling house.
