Ann Marie's Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT), a partner of Kiva.org based in Makeni, northern Sierra Leone, is very pleased to present to you this group of teachers from Bo, a city in southern Sierra Leone. This group of teachers have come to SMT to apply for a loan of SLL 18,700,000 for the entire group. With the help of this loan, they are being empowered to meet their most immediate and most pressing financial challenges. And 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 making the deductions and the repayments on their behalf.
