Maranatta Sisters For Development Group's story

Mercy G., who is holding the sign, is the leader of this group of five borrowers called “Maranatta Sisters For Development”. She is 35 years old, is single, and has three children who range from 9 to 18 years old. Mercy was only able to attend school through 6th grade due to lack of financial support.

For twenty years, Mercy has been selling cosmetics in Chicken Soup Factory Market on the outskirts of Monrovia, Liberia. She plans to use her 4,000 Liberian dollar portion of this 26,500 Liberian dollar group loan to buy more cosmetics to sell.

Mercy describes herself as a serviceable woman. Her dream is to improve her business and continue to educate her children.
