Togetherness #2 Group's story

Togetherness #2 consists of a group of five borrowers, led by Manyunbry K., who is from Zorzor, Lofa County, Liberia. Manyunbry is single, as a result of having refused to live a life of polygamy with her husband. She has three children, aged eight to 13 years old who are in fourth through sixth grades. Weedor was forced to drop out of high school and was given to an elderly man as one of his many wives. She now lives in nearby Borkeza Town.

Manyunbry business consists of selling palm oil wholesale, which is used for cooking and making soap in the Bokeza market and other markets in a stall alongside other vendors. She has been running her business for the past two years. Today, her business is only open when she has inventory, even though the demand is constant. She’s requesting a loan so that she can purchase raw materials and increase her inventory sufficiently so she can keep her business open year-round. She treats her customers so well that she believes they will come to her store year-round from adjacent villages. With the profits, she will invest in the future of her kids, especially to send them to school - of which she was unable to attend.

In this group: Manyunbry, Mekelee, Manyanley, Mawa, Matalee
