Sisters Of Bong Mines Bridge Group's story

Gorpu T., who is holding the sign, is the leader of this group of five borrowers called 'Sisters Of Bong Mines Bridge'. She is 43 years old, single, and has three children between the ages of 14 and 21 years. She was only able to attend school through 6th grade due to financial difficulties.

For 14 years, she has been selling palm oil and rice in Bong Mines Bridge Market on the outskirts of Monrovia, Liberia. She plans to use her 5,000 Liberian Dollar portion of this 21,000 Liberian Dollar group loan to buy more bags of rice and gallons of palm oil. She describes herself as a very hard-working woman whose dream is to improve her business and build a house.
