Francis' Group's story

Greetings come to you from a team of able and dedicated teachers based in the eastern city of Koidu. These teachers are proud of their previous Kiva loan and are very grateful to all those who made it possible for them. With the aid of that loan, they were able to meet their immediate and most pressing financial challenges.

Having successfully completed repayment of their loan, they have decided to apply for a second loan in the amount of 7,800,000 Sierra Leonean Leones. This new loan will enable the members of this group to further meet unresolved challenges and tackle new ones.

Featured leader Francis used his previous loan to buy building materials for the construction of a family dwelling house. He started the project but was unable to complete the house due to insufficient funds. He has asked for this new loan in order to buy building materials to continue the house building project he has begun.
