Jesus Is The Way Group's story

Jesus Is The Way is the group name of five borrowers led by Jumah S., who is 28 years old and a single mother of four children ranging in age from 4 months to 12 years old. Their educational levels range from kindergarten to 5th grade.

Jumah is a 7th-grade dropout due to early pregnancy. She lives with her parents in Virginia, a newly built community north of the capital of Liberia, Monrovia, for poor people who can't afford to buy town lots.

Jumah's business is selling charcoal. She buys charcoal wholesale and sell retail to residents of Virginia. She has been running this business for two years and hopes to establish a transportation business in the future.

Jumah parcels her charcoal larger than other vendors and sells dry charcoal to her customers in order to encourage them to continue buying from her. She faces difficulties during the rainy season because when it rains, the charcoal get wet, which causes losses for the business. She needs this loan in order to purchase more charcoal for sale.

Jumah dreams of improving her and her children's living standards and continuing her education for a better future.

In this group: Jumah, Comfort, Christiana, Justina, Nyamah
