Momblitaa is located directly the concession area allocated by the Liberian government to Malaysian palm oil company, Sime Darby. According to the contract and the concession map, Momblitaa can be encircled with palm trees and lose access to farmland and forest resources at any time the company decides to develop the land. The contract was signed without the knowledge or input of communities like Momblitaa, despite containing terms that grant the company nearly 700,000 acres for a renewable term of 63 years.
