Determiners Group's story

Samuel G., who is holding the sign, is the leader of a group of five borrowers called Determiners.

He is 33 years old, married and has four children who are between 6 to 14 years old. He was only able to attend school through 11th grade due to lack of financial support. Samuel cares for two siblings.

For five years, he has been selling soap, milk, and batteries in Thinkers Village Community on the outskirts of Monrovia, Liberia. He plans to use his 18,000 Liberian Dollars portion of this 90,000 Liberian Dollars group loan to buy more cartons of soap, milk, and batteries for his business. He describes himself as a very kind person. His goal is to improve his business and continue to educate his children so that they can have a better future.
