About The Project

$375 needed to expand her business
$25 invested by her and her family

Miatta sells used clothes and now she is more into food items. She is a very talented hard working woman. Since the launch of CII Liberia Initiative, her business activities have become more organized and profitable. She is hoping to start an import/export used clothing store and own her own store. She also makes and sells soap. She wants to expand her soap making business so she can start selling outside of Monrovia.  She knows if she buys product wholesale, the business will improve and her income will increase. She hopes to expand her business so she can hire employees and save so both of her college age children can go to college. 

..."CII Liberia has given me a vision of the future for my family that I always thought was never possible" says Miatta


Paying it Forward

"I payed it forward by giving money to my church member for her family. I will help through my church."  Miatta will pay your investment forward by helping her family and others.
