A loan of $1,275 helped a member to buy house building materials like cement and nails for the construction of a house.

Elizabeth's Group's story

These are teachers of a primary school, located in Blama village, near Kenema City in Eastern Sierra Leone. The school serves 60 pupils and employs 6 teachers. In operation since 1990, the school receives support from the government to help cover its operating costs.

However, for many of the teachers here, life can be a struggle. Many teachers therefore engage in side-projects and small businesses in order to supplement (or in some cases replace) their salaries.

Elizabeth is the leader of this group of teachers. Elizabeth is 49 years old and has been in the teaching profession for 27 years. She is married, and together they have four children – one in primary school, two in secondary school and one in college. Elizabeth plans to use her portion of the loan to buy house building materials, like cement and nails, for the construction of a house.

In this group: Elizabeth , Bockarie, Abibatu A, Samuel A.
