Some staffs of the Success Women Empowerment Network
A non-governmental organization, Success Women Empowerment Network has embarked on a training program for rural women in Nimba County. The Network currently operates in five counties, providing basic skills training such as soap making, agriculture, hairdressing or cosmetology as well as providing loans to successful graduates.
The head of the group, Madam Patricia S.N. Kuoh said the objective is to help empower rural women thru agriculture and business. She said the Network is in other parts of Liberia, helping government to achieve its development goals and improve citizens’ lives.
Madam Kuoh said women have always taken back seats, but Success Women Empowerment Network has come to make them productive and move them to the front. She said the women are being trained so they would in return, train their colleagues to enable them move from zero to hero.
She recalled that during the Liberian Civil War, women were highly affected as they lost husbands, children and other relatives, while many became widows.
