Sierra Leone - Koinadugu

The Sierra Leone- Koinadugu program is empowering farmers recovering from several years of civil war, particularly women-headed households, to increase their financial assets through Savings and Internal Lending Communities (SILCs) with group management instruction and personal knowledge and skills to  manage their own scarce financial resources. Provides a safe place to save and a process to use those savings for loans to group members. Families' agricultural production is increased through addressing the production, processing and marketing constraints faced by small holder farmers by continuing the System of Rice Intensification and linking farmers with processing and marketing facilities and services.
