As part of Adeso’s Livelihood Support for Returnees and Host Communities (LSRHC) project in Northern Bahr el Ghazal, South Sudan, Merry was provided with a Livelihood Support Grant of 1,080 SSP (USD 300) to start a small retail shop. Prior to receiving the grant, her family had a shop at the edge of their compound selling small grocery items, so Merry decided to invest some of her grant in this existing business to increase its income.
