Patience is 23 years old and lives in Gardnersville, Liberia. She is married. Her husband is a builder, and they have three children, one of whom lives at home and attends school.
Patience has operated a cook shop (restaurant) for five years. She was taught how to run the business by her mother. Her main challenges are price increases for the things she buys. She is happy when she sells her food and when her food is finished on time.
She is requesting a loan to purchase rice, charcoal by the bag, peppers and oil to continue her cook shop business. She would like to have money to build her own house.
