2016: Recipient: Sieh Mosaley- Age? She has no idea (24?)

Empowered by: Jennifer Gordon Parker

Sieh had 5 children, but one died recently due to the lack of money to buy the malaria medication that the child needed. Sieh and the remaining 4 children were brought to Liberia from Sierra Leone by her boyfriend in search of a better life. Her boyfriend, a very nice and easy going guy, as described by her, lost his job a few months ago. Since then, there has been a lot of "problems" in the house. Sieh's mother died in Sierra Leone during the Ebola time. Her mom's death was treated as an Ebola death; as all deaths around that time fell under the same category... Ebola. While in Liberia, she has been unable to find a job. She really wants to work in order to support her family. She said, "Old Ma, I will do anything for work mama." Sieh has never been to school, therefore, she does not read nor write. But she said selling is all that she knows. (with a smile) These are photos of Sieh receiving her new supply of selling goods to now be able to successfully start her very own business.
