No one can really LIVE on the mountain itself, but at the base there are a few towns and communites that are settled there.
An excerpt from the website cited below:
"The main seasonal differences are caused by the wet season which lasts from March to the end of May or early June. Clouds tend to pile up and over the summit, dropping snow on top and rain at the base. The temperatures at this time of year are relatively warm but cool down slightly in the dry season.
June and July can be very cold at night, but usually clear of clouds. These are good months to climb as the weather is stable and the mountain is quieter.
August and September are slightly warmer and can have completely clear days, but the forest and moorland are often blanketed in cloud. It is peak climbing season on the mountain.
October and November are quieter on the mountain but weather can be a bit unstable with thunderstorms building up over the mountain in the afternoons in November but this should not effect your summit attempt.
January and February are traditionally the driest months with warm clear days and brief rain showers which makes for good climbing conditions."

Mount Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano.
The release of magma along the Great Rift Valley began volcanic eruptions between 2 and 3 million years ago. The three separate summits of Kilimanjaro represent the overlapping releases that formed the mountain. Two of the peaks are considered extinct, and the third has been dormant for about 360,000 years.
