Liberian-owned businesses are said to be under serious threat as identified by the manager and proprietor of the Rose Garden Plaza Restaurant.
Madam Coma Barclay said perpetual credit in the business sector was contributing to the underdevelopment of small and medium size Liberian businesses.
According to her, creditors were in the constant habit of honoring obligations to pay back once the deal is done.
Speaking at programs marking the anniversary of the entity, she pointed out that though the sector was faced with numerous challenges, lackadaisical attitudes which breed unethical customers' service that hampers the growth and development of the sector.
Miss Barclay added that selling on credit does not undermine the growth and development of small or medium size business but can also stall market function.
She used the occasion to call on Liberian business men and women to double up and refrain from "sell-pay" which is slowly eating up the confidence the sector possessed.
"Sell-pay is a term used by Liberian businessmen and women which means to take goods another person and sell on credit.
The celebration was characterized by pomp and pageantry as an orchestra comprising of professional musicians to include veteran saxophonist O.J. Browne were on hand to quench the thirsts of the audience.
