Gabriel B's Group's story

It pleases us to present you this group of teachers from the city of Bo, southern Sierra Leone. Together, they have come to SMT, a partner of Kiva.org to apply for a loan of 15,300,000 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.

Gabriel is the featured leader of this group. Born in Njamkoro, southern Sierra Leone, the 55-year-old man is married to a school teacher. Gabriel has been a professional school teacher for 33 years now. He has three children, one of which is attending tertiary academic institution and the others are not of school going age.

Gabriel has requested a loan of 3,000,000 SLL in order to buy house building materials like iron corrugated sheets, sand, etc. for the construction of a dwelling house for his family.

In this group: Gabriel B, Mary J., Francis A, Margaret N., Christaina , Veronica I.c, Sitta , Elizabeth , Stephen M., Paul Patrick, Joanis J
