Nappy Town Group's story

Jebbeh G. is the leader of a group of five borrowers called Nappy Town Group. She is a widow with four children between the ages of 9 and 19. Their educational levels range between 6th grade and university student. Jebbeh herself is an illiterate due to lack of financial support.

She lives and works in the Old Road Community, south of the capital city of Liberia, Monrovia. Jebbeh started in business with only 1,000 LRD, selling cooked food. Now, her business is the sales of food, such as rice, water, soft drinks and so on. She buys goods wholesale and sells at retail prices to residents of her community in Monrovia. Jebbeh has been running this business for five years, and hopes to upgrade to a restaurant. She always encourages customers to continue buying from her.

Jebbeh faces the problem of the lack of capital to expand her business. She needs this loan to improve her business.

Jebbeh dreams of giving her children a good education.
