A loan of $450 helped a member to purchase more used clothes to be added to her inventory.

Good Way Group's story

Eugenia W. is the leader of a group of five borrowers called 'Good Way'. She is 48 years old, married, and has three children ranging in age from 22 to 27. She could not continue her education through high school due to financial problems.

For more than 17 years, Eugenia has been selling used clothes at Gurley Street, downtown Monrovia, Liberia. She displays her goods in an organized way which keeps customers returning. But she faces problems with buying used clothes by the bale because some of the clothes in the bale can be spoiled.

She plans to use her portion of this 30,000 LRD group loan to purchase more used clothes to be added to her inventory. And her hope and dream is to get into ordering used clothes by herself.

In the photo that accompanies this profile, Eugenia is the one holding the sign.
