Mary lives in Buchanan, the capital city of Ground Bassa County, noted for producing fish. She is widow and has five children ages 4 to 15. They all live at home, and four of them are attending school.
For the past 11 years, Mary has been selling fish in the local market. She started this business with money given to her by her mother. One problem is that some of her customers don’t pay on time.
She is requesting a loan to purchase fish for her business. She hopes to educate her children and to improve her living conditions.
