• Murphy was able to get himself through school selling fuel oil. He wants to expand his business and with a $100 investment before Covid, he was able to almost quadruple his business income! While the lock down has slowed sales, he is confident that as things get better he will continue to grow his own mini gas station as well as start a cement depot.

About The Project

$250 is needed for his next expansion of his business and to survive the lock down
$50 is what he is saving and will invest for this next phase

Murphy used to sell dishes and spoons but needed to earn more for his family.  There are many motorbikes in Liberia so he saved and started to sell gasoline, oil and brake fluid.  When he got an investment of only $100 he was able to almost quadruple his business income which rose to $500 USD for the month of March.  

Your investment will allow him to create a mini gas station, build a warehouse and add a cement deport. He has 2 employees. With your investment as well, with his expansion he wants to be able to employee 2 other Liberians so that “they will be able to help their families” as well.

..."my family and I will work together to expand the business center"


Paying it Forward

During the lockdown Murphy helped a mom to improve her charcoal selling business.  The business has been really small and she needs to grow it to feed all her children.  In the last year Murphy has also shared his earning with a carpenter and fisherman who needed help as well as a woman who sells cold water and one that sells coal.  He has a history of helping people.
