The Deputy Minister for Gender, Madam Johnson-Howard stressed that this will open more opportunities for women to improve and prove themselves in terms of how empowered they are as well as showcase the government’s pro poor agenda for all Liberians.
According to the Ministry’s official Facebook Page, Minister Johnson-Howard made the remarks on Monday at the launch of the first of 500 mobile money kiosks to be erected in Liberia this year alone by the Orange mobile company through its partnership with UN Women.
This kiosk is situated in front of the Ma Juah General Market in Waterside with the intent of seeing women move from informal to formal sectors and boost their economic empowerment strategy in the society.
Meanwhile, the launch which is in line with the government of Liberia next level program for market woman aims at erecting 100 of these kiosks which will be operated by both men and women to enable them develop their businesses while the rest will be for business transactions to include LEC bill payments, mobile money transfer, tax payment and receiving of salaries among other things.
The Ma Juah Market Kiosk is operated by Madam Catherine Sackie, a market woman from that same market who promised to make a difference in Orange Liberia marketing strategy as well as better her life.
