Success Group's story

Kebbeh S., who is holding the sign, is the leader of this group of five borrowers called Success. She is 47 years old, married, and has four children between the ages of 30 and 17 years. She was only able to attend school through 6th grade due to financial difficulties.

For thirteen years, she has been selling bitter balls (a frequent vegetable ingredient in Liberian recipes, a variety of eggplant, also known as "jilo" or "garden eggs") and dried okra in Redlight Market on the outskirts of Monrovia, Liberia. She plans to use her 16,000 LRD portion of this 76,000 LRD group loan to buy more bags of dried okra and bitter balls. She describes herself as a very hard-working woman whose dream is to improve her business and build a house.

In this group: Kebbeh, Esther, Vickie, Voigela, Manawin
