A loan of $1,175 helped a member to pay school/college fees for his children.

Peter Morlai's Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT) is very pleased to present to you this group of teachers from Makeni, a city in northern Sierra Leone.

This group of teachers has come to SMT to request a group loan of SLL 5,000,000 in order to meet their most urgent and most pressing financial challenges. At the end of each month, they can 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.

Peter is the featured leader of this team. He is a native of Royoma Bana village, in northern Sierra Leone. Peter is age 56, he is married to a trader, and the couple have four children, all of whom are attending schools. Peter has been a school teacher for 33 years now.

He has requested this loan in order to pay school/college fees for his children.

In this group: Peter Morlai, Jacob Alusine, Eric Alusine
