Aminata B.'s Group's story

Pictured here are teachers from a primary school situated in Waterloo, a town near Freetown. This group of teachers has come to SMT, a partner of Kiva.org, to apply for a loan of SLL 8,000,000 in order to meet their most immediate and most pressing financial needs. 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 managing the deductions and making the repayments on their behalf. Alieu is the featured leader of this group. The 45-year-old is a native of Masiaka village. He is married to a nurse and he has 12 children – 4 in primary school, 5 in secondary and 3 are not of school-going age. Alieu has been a professional teacher for 18 years now. He is pursuing further studies in college. He has requested this loan in order to pay his college fees.
