A loan of $1,875 helped a member to pay school fees for his children.

Mohamed M.'s Group's story

Pictured above are teachers in one of the secondary schools in the city of Koidu in eastern Sierra Leone. This group of teachers has come to SMT, Kiva’s earliest field partner, to request a loan of 8,100,000 for the entire group. With the help of this loan, they are being empowered to meet their immediate and most pressing needs. 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 calculating the deductions and making the repayments on their behalf.

Mohamed is the featured leader of the team. He is a 33-year-old. He is a native of Kaambo village in northern Sierra Leone. He is married with 2 children who are attending primary schools. Mohamed has been a professional teacher for 5 years now. He has requested this loan in order to pay school fees for his children.
