God Is In Control Group's story

Mariama D. sells prepared food. She buys foodstuffs, cooks meals and sells by the plate to residents of Virginia, a community north of the capital, Monrovia, in Liberia. Mariama is 26 years old and married with a 7-year-old child in kindergarten. Mariama is a 3rd grade drop-out due to the Liberian civil crisis. She and her family live in Virginia, a newly built community for poor people who can't afford to buy a town lot.

Mariama has been running her business for two years and hopes to start a restaurant in the future. Mariama's problem is shelter because, when it rains, there is nowhere for customers to sit and eat. She talks nicely to her customers and always cooks delicious food for them, to encourage them to continue buying from her. She needs this loan to purchase foodstuffs like oil, rice, cubes, salt, pepper, etc. in order to serve her customers. Mariama depends on her business to pay her child's school fees and to take care of her daily needs. She dreams of improving her standard of living and continuing her education to the highest level.

"God Is In Control" is a group of five borrowers led by Mariama D..

In this group: Mariama, Destine, Agatha, Jebbeh, Musu
