In God We Trust Group's story

Marie S. is the leader of the group of five borrowers called In God We Trust. She is 40 years old, married, and has 6 children who range from 1 to 7 years old. She did not have the opportunity to go to school because of poverty. For 8 years, Marie has been selling charcoal at retail at the Thinkers Village community in Paynesville, Liberia. She has a nice manner of approach to her customers which keeps them returning. Marie started by selling oil and did not have any problems when doing business. She plans to use her 6,000 Liberian dollar portion of this 30,000 Liberian dollar group loan to buy more charcoal for sale. Her goal is to build a house and send her children to school.
