In God We Trust Group's story

In God We Trust is a group of five borrowers led by Fanta D., who is 32 years old, married and has a two-year old child. Fanta is not educated, because before the late 1970’s her tribe, the Mandingo, believed that women did not need to be educated, but rather should rely on their husbands for their daily needs and financial matters.

To deal with her lack of formal education, she learned tailoring and today both lives and works on McDonald Street in downtown Monrovia, Liberia. She buys clothes wholesale and sells them retail. She also sells jewellery. Her business has been doing well.

Fatu started as a contractor but later opened her own shop. Sometimes, she faces difficulties and challenges because she has so many customers that she has a hard time taking care of all of them. Fatu believes that by buying the right goods and preparing them carefully for sale, she can retain her customers because everyone wants nice clothing.

Fatu has been in business for more than 10 years but still wants to grow so she can own a big business and improve her skills. She would also like to build a house for her child. She has applied for this loan to buy more clothes and better serve her customers.

In this group: Fatu, Fatu, Hawa, Kayatu, Asatu
