Alhaji Mustapha'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 Koidu, a city in eastern Sierra Leone. This group of teachers has come to SMT to apply for a loan of SLL 21,100,000.00 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 doing the deductions and making the repayments on their behalf.

Alhaji Mustapha is the featured leader of this group. Alhaji Mustapha is 41 year old. A native of Old Sefadu, he is married to a school teacher. He has been a school teacher for 21 years now. He has requested this loan in order to pay school fees for his children and for himself to pursue further studies in college.
