Sahr Victor's Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT), a partner of Kiva.org is very pleased to present to you this group of able and dedicated teachers from the city of Koidu, in eastern Sierra Leone. This group of teachers has applied for a loan of 15,300,000 SLL in order to meet their immediate and most pressing financial needs. At the end of each month, the group can easily repay their loan using their monthly salaries. It is their school’s bursar who is directly responsible for making the repayments on their behalf.

Sahr Edward is the featured leader of this group. A native of Yengema, the 54-year-old is married to a housewife. The couple has 6 children, 3 of whom are attending secondary schools. Sahr Edward has been a school teacher for 28 years now. He has requested this loan in order to pay school fees for his children.
