Idrissa A.'s Group's story

The members of this group are all teachers at a secondary school in Makeni. The school was built in 1989 by a Muslim leader, with a body of religious and businesswomen to help educate the children of Makeni city and the surrounding villages. This school (a junior secondary school) has a total of 38 staff and 500 pupils. It is one of the most advanced secondary schools in Makeni city. Over the years, the school has produced teachers, doctors, lawyers, accountants, ministers and so on.

Teachers are one of the poorest paid workers in Sierra Leone. Because of this, many of them find alternative means of making a living. Some engage in business or agriculture while others organize extra classes for pupils. These teachers are therefore seeking a loan in order to embark on meaningful projects. They will gradually repay the loan out of their monthly salaries.

Idrissa A. M. is a senior teacher at the school. He is 50 years old and was born in Makeni city, in northern Sierra Leone. Mr. M. has been a teacher for over 29 years now. He is married with four children, all of whom are at university. He will use this loan to pay the second semester college fees for two of his children in N’Jala University College.
