Michael Momoh's Group's story

Pictured here are teachers of a primary school in Kenema, a city in eastern Sierra Leone. This group of teachers has come to SMT, a partner of Kiva.org in Makeni, northern Sierra Leone, to request a loan of 7,000,000 Leones. With the help of this loan, these teachers are able to solve their immediate and most pressing financial needs. At the end of each month, they will repay the loan using their monthly salaries. Their school’s bursar is directly responsible for doing the deductions and making the repayments on their behalf. Michael is the featured leader of this group of teachers. He is 51 years of age. Michael is a native of Nekabo. He is married to a trader and they have four children who are attending primary and secondary schools. Michael has served in the teaching profession for 36 years now. He has requested this loan in order to buy iron corrugated sheets, nails, cements, etc. for the construction of a dwelling house for his family.

In this group: Michael Momoh, Mohamed A., Lawrence K., Kalifatu M.
