During a symbolic presentation at the office of  the county’s superintendent, Mrs. VerneeTwehway, the county coordinator of the Rural Women in Bassa said the money is intended to empower women across the county in the area of communal farming. Mrs. Twehway disclosed that each of the five electoral districts will receive nine hundred thousand Liberian Dollars each, while the remaining five hundred thousand will be distributed among other rural women communities within the county, but it remains unclear as to when the distribution process will commence.
