Togetherness Group's story

Togetherness is a group of 5 borrowers, led by Krubo Y., living in Zorzor, Lofa County, Liberia.

Krubo is married with 4 children, ages 5-22. Her 15 year old is only in the 6th grade because she was forced to drop out during the war. Krubo is 35 years old, illiterate, and lives in Borkeza Town.

Krubo’s business is selling dry food goods in the market, including onions, manpo (local spice), sugar, salt, tomato sauce, etc. She buys these food items wholesale in neighboring Guinea. She has been running her business for 2 years. She’s taking a loan to increase her inventory sufficiently so she can serve more customers. With the profits she dreams of building a more permanent shop and investing in the future of her children, especially investing in education since she was unable to attend school.
