Asha, 37-years-old, has been working hard for the past six years managing her business. She sells body cream, bath soap, washing soap, lapper, trousers, skirts, handbags, blouses, etc. She lives in West Point. Asha is married with three children, ages 18 to 22, that are attending school and live at home. Her husband is a government worker.
A challenge she is faced with is the exchange rate (USD to LD). Her favorite part of her business is the amount of profit that she generates from her monthly sales and loan that she received from BRAC, since this is her second loan cycle from BRAC Liberia. She is very proud of her business because, with the profit and extra loan, she was able to buy more goods to increase her business and purchase a portion of land. She has requested a loan to purchase more body cream and spray, bath and washing soap, women's and men's shoes, roll-on, men's and women's trousers, blouses, etc., for her business. Her plan for the future is to build a house and educate her children.
