Lc And H Saving Club Group's story

Helena A. is the leader of the group of five borrowers called LC and H Saving Club. (In the photo that accompanies this profile, Helena is the one holding the sign.) She is 43 years old, single, and has five children who range from 18 to 23 years old. Helena was able to attend school through high school.

For 25 years, Helena has been selling medicine at the Red Light Market, which is the largest market in Liberia. She says that she provides her customers with good quality medicine and treats her customers with care, which keeps them coming to her for business.

Helena plans to use her 7,000 Liberian dollar portion of this 35,000 Liberian dollar group loan to buy more medicine.
