Student Patience Y. Saye on dutyKAKATA, MARGIBI – The arrival of a Chinese construction company into Liberia in 2008 appears the conduit for the realization of the ‘heavy duty dream’ of 28-year-old student Patience Y. Saye, a native of Nimba County, in Northern Liberia. “At BWI, I’m studying Heavy Duty, a Course on repairs and operation of any earth-moving machines, like caterpillar,” she added and chuckled. Why did the 28-year-old mother pick out caterpillar operation, a job most Liberians feel is a ‘man’s job’? “We are mostly into road construction and maintenance, with around 100 Liberian employees. That’s the reason many small, small road construction companies are springing up in China nearly every day,” he lectured.
