Ma-Nyanly's story

Please meet 45-year-old Ma-Nyanly, from Paynesville North, in Liberia. Paynesville North has the largest market in Montserrado County. The area is home to “round-time marketers,” traders that travel to the interior to purchase various goods to sell throughout the county. As a result, there is a high concentration of wholesalers in the area who distribute to various markets around Montserrado County, including Monrovia. Ma-Nyanly has obtained a university degree and she is married. She describes herself as a hard-working businesswoman. Her husband is a businessman. Ma-Nyanly has a shop in which she sells lappa (traditional cloths, mostly used by African women) and African dresses. She has been in this business for 14 years and she works 12 hours each day at her business. With this loan, she will buy lappa and dresses for her business. One of the greatest challenges that she faces is few goods in her shop. She transports her goods by bus. She started her business with money from her husband, who sells gasoline. Ma-Nyanly is proud of her business because she makes more profit. Her plans are to build a house and to buy her car. She thanks you in advance for your support!
