Sarah Sackor Group's story

Missionmah R. is the leader of a group of five borrowers called Sarah Sackor Group. She is 58 years old, married and has six children who range from 25 to 40 years old. She did not have the opportunity to go to school.

For more than 3 years, Missionmah has been running her doughnut business at the Old Road Market in Monrovia, Liberia. Missionmah prepares her doughnuts well and takes the doughnuts around to customers which keeps them buying from her.

Missionmah plans to use her 14,000 Liberian dollar portion of this 56,000 Liberian dollar group loan to purchase more flour, sugar and oil for making doughnuts. Her goal is to improve her business and buy land for her family.
