HARPER, July 21(LINA) - Over 1,000 marketers in Maryland County have benefited a L$1.1 million loan from the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL). The money is intended to build the financial capacity of marketers across the county and enhance productivity.
Disclosing this recently in Harper in an interview with the Liberia News Agency, the president of the Maryland Marketing Association, Abraham Wilson, said eight major markets throughout the county are covered under the loan scheme.
They include the Harper Central Market, New Kru Town, East Harper and Pleebo Markets.
Other beneficiaries are Gedetabo, Boniken and Karloken markets.
Meanwhile, Mr. Wilson has commended the Government through the Central Bank for the loan which, he said, will “greatly impact the lives of the marketers.”
He then called on Government to construct feeders roads in Maryland County to facilitate the transportation of agriculture produce to markets.
