David V.'s Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT), a Kiva field partner based in Makeni, northern Sierra Leone, is very pleased to present to you this group of teachers from one of the primary schools in Waterloo, a town near Sierra Leone’s capital city, Freetown.

These able and dedicated teachers are requesting a loan of 3,500,000 SLL in order to solve their immediate financial challenges and, at the end of each month, they can easily 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.

Alfred is the featured leader to this team. The 30 year old is single with two children. A native of Waterloo town, Alfred has been a professional teacher for six years now. He has requested this loan in order to buy building materials for the construction of a house.
