Abdul R.'s Group's story

Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT) is very pleased to present to you this group of teachers from Waterloo, a small town in western Sierra Leone. Together, they have applied for a loan of 12,200,000.00 Sierra Leonean Leones (SLL) 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 monthly salaries. It is their school’s bursar who is directly responsible for doing the deductions and making the repayments on their behalf. Abdul is the featured leader of this group of borrowers. A native of Manolo, the 46-year-old is married to a businesswoman and the couple has four children who are attending primary and secondary schools. Abdul has requested a loan of 3,000,000 SLL in order to pay school fees for his children and will use the rest of the loan to buy house building materials like iron corrugated sheets, sand, nails, cement, iron rods, etc., for the construction of a home.

In this group: Abdul R., Ismeal , Mohamed , Idrissa , Sulaiman , Musa , Ibrahim K.
