Women Leader Calls For Feeder Roads   

By John Bropleh, LINA Maryland County Correspondent

HARPER, March 18 (LINA) -The president of the Maryland County Rural Women Association, Madam Felecia Tarley, has stressed the need to construct and upgrade feeder roads across the county, to ensure free movement and enhance commercial activities.

Madam Tarley said the exercise will also help improve cross-border trade with neighboring countries within the Mano River Basin.

She made the call Saturday in the border town of Yookudi in Maryland County, in an interview with the Liberia News Agency.

Madam Tarley noted that when feeder roads are built or rehabilitated, cross-border goods and services will flow to markets on both sides of the border.

She said women of Yookudi, who have Thursday as their market day every week, trade with Ivorian women who cross into Liberia during market days to buy goods and services.

The Liberia News Agency correspondent in Maryland County, who traveled to the area at the weekend, saw an array of Ivorian women who walked one mile into the Maryland County from the border to sell agricultural commodities.
