“I believe that DMF can help alleviate the economic hardships in developing countries, such as Liberia, by offering small business loans,” stated Michael Gray, Founder. “As Founder, I faced the same heavy challenges and hardships during my childhood in war-torn, poverty stricken Liberia, Africa. This was the impetus behind my creation of DMF. I plan to use DMF as a platform to effect global and local change at a grassroots level. As a survivor of tragic civil war, and having been blessed with the opportunity to have immigrated to the United States, I have managed to excel as a professional in the city of Newark,” Gray added.
