Lilian I's Group's story

These are teachers at College Secondary School in Kenema, a city in eastern Sierra Leone. The school was founded in September 1999 by the Eastern Polytechnic College Board of Governors to serve as a feeder school for the college. Currently, the school has 34 teachers on its pay roll and 965 registered pupils.

This is the first loan that the teachers of this school have requested from SMT & Kiva lenders. They have asked for SLL 12,400,000 for the entire group, and with the help of this loan, these teachers will be in a strong position to buy or invest in something that their salaries alone can not allow them to.

Lilian I. M., 52, is the leader of the group. She was born in a village called Kpetema. She is married and has 2 children; 1 is in secondary school and the other is no longer attending school. Lilian has been a teacher for 30 years now. She will invest her share of the loan in a business.

In this group: Lilian I, Usman , Denis , Metamoi , Alex , Ruth K. , Alpha , Patricia , John A., Kamara , Moigua , Hallie D. , Edmond A.
