Ruth, 35, lives in the West Point community with her husband and four children who are between the ages of three months and 16 years old. Ruth's husband is an instructor; he gave her the initial capital to start in this business.
Ruth learned to sell from her friends. She has her business near her house where she sells fourteen hours per day. She sells rice, palm oil, cooking oil, tomatoes, salt, and coal by retail. She transports her goods by taxi.
Ruth is requesting a loan to purchase more rice, palm oil, salt, vita, and tomatoes to increase her sales. Her plans are to educate her children and to become an international business woman.
