Aiah David's Group's story

Meet teachers of a vocational institute in the city of Koidu, in eastern Sierra Leone. This group of hard-working and dedicated teachers has come to Salone Microfinance Trust, a Kiva partner based in Makeni, in northern Sierra Leone, to request a loan of 8,000,000 Sierra Leonean leone for the entire team.

With the help of this loan, these men will be able to solve their immediate and most pressing financial challenges. At the end of each month, they can easily repay the loan, using their monthly salaries. Their institution’s bursar is directly responsible for doing the deductions and making the repayments on their behalf.

On the left in the photo is Sahr, the team’s featured leader. Born in Gandorhun, in eastern Sierra Leone, the 45-year-old is married to a teacher, and the couple has three children. Sahr has been a school teacher for 18 years. He has requested this loan to buy building materials for the construction of a dwelling house.

In this group: Aiah David, Sahr E., Tamba Samuel, Morie Tapima Moi
