Masofoe is 34 years old, married, and has three children between the ages of 17 and 20, who are in school. All of them live at West Point, one of the most populated and well-known markets in Montserrado County. This county is a major center for producing fish for the Liberian local market.

Masofoe is a high school graduate. She has been selling goods, like palm oil, rice, charcoal, beans, okra and pepper, in the local market for the past ten years. Because she uses a motorbike to get her goods from the bush (village), she really faces a big problem during the rainy season. She is requesting a loan to enable her to increase her inventory before the rainy season.

Her dreams are to build a house for her children, and to grow her business because with it, she has gained her independence.
