Kitoboi #2 Group's story

Kitoboi #2 is a group of five borrowers, led by Molay Z., living in Kolahu, Lofa County, Liberia. Molay is 45 years old and married with three children, aged 8-23. Her middle child is in the 8th grade but the oldest didn’t get to attend school because of the war. Molay was unable to attend school because, although she enjoyed it, the cultural norm was for girls to rely on their husbands to provide, and therefore school was considered unnecessary. Molay lives in remote Kolahu City in rural Lofa County, the breadbasket of Liberia. Molay’s business is dry goods, including Maggi cubes (a soup product), spices, matches, palm oil, etc., which she buys wholesale and sells in a temporary market stall alongside approximately one hundred other vendors of various trades. She has run her business for four years and is successful because her customers like her personality and her work ethic. Molay’s dream is to grow her business so that she can one day have a bigger table in the market. With the profits from her business she dreams of raising her family well and sending her youngest children to school which she was unable to attend.

In this group: Molay, Fatta , Oldlady , Koboh , Mama
