Dominic's Group's story

Meet this group of teachers from the eastern city of Koidu. This group of hard-working and dedicated teachers has come to SMT, a partner of Kiva, based in Makeni, northern Sierra Leone to request a loan of 5,100,000 SLL for the entire team. With the help of this loan, they are being empowered to meet their immediate and most pressing financial needs, 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.

In the middle of the photo is Sahr. The 54-year-old was born in Senehun, in eastern Sierra Leone. He is married to a teacher and the couple have nine children – five are in primary school, three are in secondary school and one is in college. Sahr has been a professional teacher for 32 years now.

He has requested for a loan of 1,500,000 SLL in order to buy house building materials – iron corrugated sheets, cement, etc. for the construction of a dwelling house.

In this group: Dominic , Kai Alex, Sahr Augustine
