Self Empowerment Group's story

Daniel K., who is holding the sign, is the leader of this group of five borrowers called Self Empowerment. He is 37 years old, married, and has five children who range from 3 to 16 years old. He also cares for three siblings. He is a college student but could not continue his education due to financial constraints. All of his children are attending school.

For five years, Daniel has been operating a mini photo studio at the Red Light Market in Paynesville, outside of Monrovia, Liberia.

Daniel plans to use his 9,000 Liberian dollar portion of this 41,000 Liberian dollar group loan to buy a photo printer. He describes himself as a hardworking man. His dream is to expand his business and open a modern photo studio.
