A loan of $1,300 helped a member to buy more fish.


Women Of Substance Group's story

Mama P. is the leader of a group of five borrowers called 'Women Of Substance'. She is 40 years old, married, and has five children who range from 6 to 16 years old. She never had the opportunity to attend school.

For 25 years, she has been selling dried fish at the Fiamah Market on the outskirts of Monrovia, Liberia. She sells in a friendly manner which keeps customers returning.

She plans to use her 18,000 Liberian dollar portion of this 92,000 Liberian dollar group loan to buy more fish. Her goal is to grow her business and to continue to support her children so that they can have a better future.
