Impacting West Africa- Transforming People’s lives in Liberia through Microfinance - Issue 1
Pauline Thomas is a mother of four. She had dreamt of becoming an entrepreneur during her five-year stay in a refugee camp. She had escaped from the brutal civil war in Liberia when she fled the country with her husband and four children and found refuge in Sierra Leone, where she took classes offered in the camp on how to develop and manage a small business. Despite the hardships she and her family endured, Pauline overcame many challenges and devised various ways to make ends meet. When the war ended, Pauline and her family returned to Liberia full of hope and renewed spirit.
