B.d.e.c. Ngeiya Road Group's story

Meet this group of primary school teachers from the city of Bo, in southern Sierra Leone. Together, they have come to SMT, a partner of Kiva.org, to apply for a loan of 14,700,000 Sierra Leonean Leones. With the help of this loan, they are being empowered to meet their most immediate and most pressing financial needs. And at the end of each month, they will be able to 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.

Alusine is the featured leader of this group. Born in Mossive, the 43-year-old is married to a businesswoman, and he has five children, four of whom are attending schools. Alusine has been a school teacher for 18 years now.

He has requested this loan in order to pay school fees for his children.
