- Angels Lending Group has recently announced that there are funding options available to security firms interested in promoting security, human well being, and general welfare to individuals in trouble areas. Funding options have been difficult to come by in light of the current economic condition. It is reported that the Gross Domestic Product of the United States is still experiencing a general deficit of at minimum one billion.
In the ambassador's remarks Ms. Rice was quoted,
"The Security Council mission also had the opportunity to meet with representatives from the international businesses community in Liberia. These individuals noted that a strong, stabilizing UN presence had helped sway their decision to invest in Liberia. We cautioned them not to grow too dependent on UNMIL since eventually, obviously, it will have to be withdrawn. But it was interesting to witness representatives of the business community engaged in renewable energy technologies as well as the traditional sectors like rubber and mining."
Angels Lending Group was very supportive of the US Representative's remarks and affirmed although funding slots would be open for organizations seeking to help bring peace and stability to conflict areas, that the long term incorporation of each security firm must to be transition training to the local governments.
"At our underwriting department we have a very good mix of professionals. We have hired certain individuals to specialize in certain areas, and we have hired on past combat military experience underwriters to help gauge these type of projects. Specifically we have named Montelly Lopez Jr, to head our military based & security orientated projects." said Christopher Knight, Chief Underwriter of Angels Lending Group.
"I've had an extensive amount of combat experience in the United States Army. I've been involved in combat operations in Iraq, and have ran live missions with special forces. I'm happy to be placed in a position where I can incorporate my past experience and utilize this experience to apply to projects that come through our underwriting department." said Montelly Lopez Jr, Lead Underwriter of Security Based Projects for Angels Lending Group.
Ambassador Rice went on to continue with the UNMIL remarks,
"We met with UNMIL, of course, and its senior military and police commanders gave us a sober assessment of the security situation in Liberia. They characterized the overall situation as calm but unpredictable. They noted that demonstrations often turn violent; crime, gangster activities, armed robberies, and sexual violence remain widespread. And rape, as we heard repeatedly, is a particularly urgent challenge, with most reported victims under the age of 14, and some victims under the age of two."
Angels Lending Group has specifically opened up funding slots for this area in the private sector in hopes there will be responsible security firms that will step forward to combat these tyrannical activities.
