Ransford Alex's Group's story

Pictured above are teachers of a secondary school in the eastern city of Koidu. Like their counterparts in SMT’s other operational areas, they have come to request a loan of 3,900,000.00 Sierra Leonean Leones for the entire team. With the help of this loan, they will be able to meet their immediate and most pressing financial needs. At the end of each month, their school’s bursar can deduct money from their salaries to repay SMT/Kiva lenders.



Sidikie (who is pictured in the middle) is the featured leader of this team. Born in Jaima in eastern Sierra Leone, the 28-year-old is single with one child who is attending primary school. A school teacher for six years now, Sidikie has requested this loan to pay college fees for himself and to buy house-building materials such as iron corrugated sheets, nails, cement, etc. for the construction of a home.
