A Liberian-based enterprising women group, United Women Beyond Borders has lauded the Political Leader of the Alternative National Congress (ANC) Mr. Alexander B. Cummings for his continuous support in empowering women to become self-reliant and self-sufficient.

The United Women Beyond Borders, with a membership of over one thousand, is currently constructing a 42-stores building in the Paynesville Redlight market District, to which they said Mr. Cummings has made substantial contributions.

The women are mainly engaged in cross borders trade in West Africa, importing essential agro-produces including dried peppers, groundnuts, and beans for supply on the Liberian market.

The President of the United Women Beyond Borders, Madam Sangai Dunbar expressed gratitude to the ANC Leader for his generous assistance which she said has enabled the organization to embark on the construction of the 42 stores building nearing completion.
