Peaceful Business Group's story

Anna K. is the leader of a group of five borrowers called Peaceful Business. She is 40 years old, married, and has three children who range from 15 to 20 years old. She did not have the opportunity to go to school due to poverty. For 15 years, Anna has been selling foodstuffs such as rice and onions at the Harbel Market. She says she provides good customer service which keeps customers returning. Anna plans to use her 4,000 Liberian dollar portion of this 20,000 Liberian dollar group loan to buy more rice and onions. Her goal is to grow her business and to continue to educate her children and build them a house. In the photo that accompanies this profile, Anna is the one holding the sign.
