Mewaseh Behyee runs the Menwo Soap Production Centre in the city of Ganta in Nimba Country. He was among over 200 entrepreneurs who benefitted from the UNDP Business Opportunities Support Service Project (BOSS) training in 2017.
Behyee says that prior to the training, he lacked basic accounting and managerial skills to properly run his soap production factory. According to him, the UNDP/BOSS training exercise has added value to the daily running of the business.
LIBERIA REACHED A SIGNIFICANT MILESTONE IN 2018 with peaceful transition of power from one democratically elected leader to another for the first time in over 70 years, while also marking the end of over 13-years of UN peacekeeping mission. It was in this transition that UNDP reinforced its partnership with Liberia reiterating its commitment to helping the nation on its path towards sustainable development.
UNDP is the UN's global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in some 170 countries and territories, working with them on their own solutions to global and national development challenges. As they develop local capacity, they draw on the people of UNDP and our wide range of partners. UNDP has been working in Liberia since 1977 in peace and in crisis times and is committed to helping Liberia achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGS) as well as the country’s national development priorities set out in the National Vision 2030 - Liberia Rising and the Government’s newest Pro-Poor Agenda (PPA).
