Mariatu S.'s Group's story

Pictured here are teachers of a primary school located in Lunsar, a town in northern Sierra Leone. This group of teachers has come to SMT/Kiva lenders to apply for a loan of SLL 10,000,000 in order to meet their most immediate and 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 doing the deductions and making the repayments on their behalf.

Mariatu is the featured leader of this team. Mariatu is 32 years old. She is married to a teacher and the couple has two children. Mariatu has been a school teacher since 2010. In addition to her profession as a school teacher, Mariatu also sells drinks in her kiosk. She has applied for this loan in order to buy crates of drinks to add to her current stock.
