Lawrence K.'s Group's story

Presented in the picture above is a group of primary school teachers located in the eastern city of Kenema. These teachers need a total loan of 12,500,000 Sierra Leonean Leones in order to meet their most immediate and pressing needs. Most often, they use these loans to pay school fees for their children, invest in businesses, buy pieces of furniture or house building materials, etc. At the end of each month, they use their salaries to repay SMT/Kiva lenders.

Lawrence is the featured leader of this team of school teachers. Born in Giehum village, located in eastern Sierra Leone, he is married to a housewife. Lawrence, who has five children attending primary and secondary schools, has been a professional school teacher for 35 years now.

Lawrence has requested this loan in order to buy materials such as iron corrugated sheets, sand, nails, cement, iron rods, etc. for the construction of a house for his family.

In this group: Lawrence K., Musa Jeremiah, Mohamed A, Swaliho Mohamed, Joseph , Abdulai M.m
