United Women Group's story

United Women is a group of five borrowers led by Beatrice C., a 44-year-old single mother of four children. Her children are aged between 23 and 27 years old and have attained education from 12th grade up to university senior. Beatrice also cares for four grandchildren. Beatrice dropped out of school in 6th grade due to poverty. She and her family live in Virginia, a newly-built community north of the capital, Monrovia, for poor people who can't afford to buy a town lot.

Beatrice's business is selling fish. She buys fish wholesale from fishermen and sells it retail to residents of Virginia. She has been running this business for 27 years and hopes to establish a fish wholesale depot in the future. Beatrice talks to her customers in a good manner and sells good, fresh fish, in order to encourage them to continue buying from her. She is requesting a loan in order to purchase more fish to sell to her customers. Beatrice dreams of giving her grandchildren a good education as preparation for the future.
