Abdul's story

Abdul is a 39-year-old male who works at a sugar company in the town of Magburaka in the northern province of Sierra Leone. While doing that, he has also been a farmer for the past 5 years. Abdul and his wife have three children, all of whom are in primary schools. The family’s livelihood depends on generating income through the efforts of both his wife and himself, and Abdul is requesting a loan for SLL 2,000,000 from Salone Microfinance Trust, a Kiva partner in Sierra Leone. Abdul will buy more agricultural seeds and hire workers. Abdul will be able to repay his loan through automatic payroll deductions, a service provided through SMT’s partnership with his employer, the sugar company.
