Samuel C's Group's story

Pictured here are teachers of a primary school located in Magburaka, a town in northern Sierra Leone. This group of teachers has come to SMT, a partner of Kiva.org, to apply for a loan of SLL 9,000,000 in order to meet their most immediate and most pressing financial needs. And at the end of each month, they can easily repay the loan using their salaries. It is their school’s bursar who is directly responsible for doing the deductions and making the repayments on their behalf. Samuel is the featured leader of this group. Samuel is 41 year old. He is married and has four children who are attending primary and secondary schools. Samuel is a school teacher and has been in the teaching profession for 20 years now. Samuel has requested this loan in order to buy house building materials like cements, iron corrugated sheets, etc. to add to his business.
