Augustine C.'s Group's story

Pictured here are teachers of a primary school located in the village of Binkolo, near Makeni. This group of teachers has come to Salone Microfinance Trust (SMT) for the second time to apply for a loan of 13,800,000 SLL for the entire group. With the help of this new loan, they will be able to again meet their most immediate and pressing financial needs. And at the end of each month, they can easily repay the loan, using their monthly salaries. As usual, it is their school’s bursar who is directly responsible for doing the deductions and making the repayments on their behalf.

Augustine is, again, the featured leader of this group. The 56-year-old is a native of Binkolo, in northern Sierra Leone. He is married to a housewife and the couple has three children who are attending schools. Augustine has been a school teacher for many years now. This time, he has requested this loan in order to buy house building materials such as iron corrugated sheets, sand, nails, cements, etc. for the construction of a dwelling house for his family.
