Lead Inc, is passionate about serving enthusiastic clients that will change the macro economy of Liberia. We primarily seek to serve the “Missing
Middle,” or business people who run small to medium-sized enterprises (SME) with the highest potential for job creation and growth. Studies show that the creation of a middle class is one
of the most effective ways to lift communities out of poverty. In this way, LEAD recognizes that business development can be an important tool in restoring families and communities.
The development of entrepreneurial skills decreases dependency and gives providers dignity and the ability to care for their own families.
In 2008, LEAD Inc expanded its operations to serve micro-businesses with the intent to build these enterprises into SME’s over time. Within Liberia, few individuals hold the adequate capital or knowledge to run medium-sized businesses, and thus, this capacity must be developed. In 2010, two more programs were added, one for micro-farmers and the other for strong and developing medium businesses. LEAD currently serves over 3,000 clients.
We work in six of Liberia's Counties:
- Montserrado, Monrovia
- Grand Bassa, Buchannan
- Bong, Gbanga
- Nimba, Ganta
- Margibi, Unification Town
- Grand Cape Mount, Tiene
